Unearthing Montreal's luminous past : A living archeological legacy

» Château Ramezay - Musée et site historique de Montréal in collaboration with Desjardins

For the City’s 375th anniversary, come see an exhibit featuring the archeology of Montreal.

Inspired by the publication Lumières sous la ville : Quand l’archéologie raconte Montréal, and for the City’s 375th anniversary, the Château Ramezay is presenting an exhibit featuring the archeology of Montreal. Visitors will have an opportunity to get a close-up look at some of the artifacts which illustrate the lives of those who have lived on this island, from prehistoric Aboriginal peoples to industrial era Montrealers. This book, published in fall 2016 by Recherches amérindiennes du Québec, was written under the direction of archeologists Anne-Marie Balac and François C. Bélanger. The book is available for purchase at the Château Ramezay's bookstore.
