Both local and lointain: Environmental Archaeology and Palaeoecology at the îlot des Palais site, Quebec City.

Author(s): Allison L Bain; Reginald Auger

Year: 2018

Summary

A decade of environmental and palaeoecological research at the îlot des Palais or Intendant’s Palace site in Quebec City has yielded rich and detailed datasets that document the site’s transformation from a marshy riverside setting to an important hive of activity for Intendants, artisans and occupants. The methods presented in this paper include archaeoentomology, zooarchaeology, dendrochronology and macrobotanical analyses. They demonstrate that products imported from the metropole and within the region were subsequently used on site and across the vast network of New France. In doing so, they create complimentary narratives about production, consumption and status at the site and aide in our understanding of landscape use throughout the Colonial Period.
