Transition from a Natural to a Cultural Landscape in Quebec City : An Entomological Point of View

Author(s): Mélanie Rousseau

Year: 2013

Summary

Quebec City’s Intendant’s Palace site is rich in history. For my thesis, I am interested in one history in particular, namely the transition from a natural to a cultural landscape at this site. The landscape pre-dating and after the arrival of Europeans has already been investigated to some degree; however, how the actual transition took place remains unclear.  Various methodologies have the potential to address this research question. This thesis will rely on archaeoentomology, micromorphology and palynology, as each of them offers different types of information. This presentation will introduce the preliminary results of the archaeoentomological study.
