Seeds of misfortune: plant macroremains left in St. Peter’s Bay, PEI by Acadian deportees

Author(s): Kevin Leonard

Year: 2014

Summary

The brief but prosperous period of settlement at Havre St. Pierre introduced a wide range of new plant species. Macroremains recovered from excavations adjacent to an Acadian dwelling burnt (possibly by the British during the 1758 expulsion) and from the bottom of a nearby well reveal the extent of the impact on the local flora created by the Acadian residents whose lives were uprooted by colonial war.
