Day of Archaeology at Dundurn Castle National Historic Site in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

During the Day of Archaeology, our crew was carrying out a Stage 4 consulting excavation at Dundurn Castle National Historic Site in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The manor house was the 19th century home of politician and railway magnate Sir Alan MacNab, and the entire parkland surrounding the manor is a registered archaeological site, representing almost 9,000 years of human occupation. The site is also part of Burlington Heights, defended by the British military during the War of 1812. Our work is part of the ongoing management of this important archaeological and historical resource.DSC00636DSC00629DSC00631DSC00626DSC00637
