Colonial architecture from the Cartier-Roberval site (1541-1543), Cap Rouge, Quebec
Author(s): Gilles Samson
Three buildings and a major defensive element were unearthed on the edge of the Cap Rouge cliff. Building materials and techniques as well as their principal characteristics are presented and discussed. Research has used specialized studies such as anthracology, geoarchaeology, sedimentology, chemical and mineralogical analysis of soils in order to document many architectural aspects. Also, a comparative approach has led to the examination of many medieval European as well as American colonial sites. A tentative restitution is given of the buildings and fort as is known from the present interpretation of the data.
