Meet the Andersons: Urban Archaeology of the 19th century in Quebec City, Canada

Author(s): Allison L Bain

Year: 2020

Summary

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Comparative Perspectives on European Colonization in the Americas: Papers in Honor of Réginald Auger" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Since 2017, the Anderson site in the Limoilou neighbourhood of Quebec City has been excavated by Université Laval’s historical archaeology field school. The rich material culture of the 19th century recovered since 2018 has created significant local interest in the project. This paper will examine how the participation of local collaborators and social media are positively influencing how we practice archaeology in the city. The first three years of the Anderson project were co-directed with Réginald Auger and I will highlight his role in this and other recent urban archaeology projects.
