A public lecture by Dr. Sara Spike
From pre-contact Mi'kmaw occupation and a series of forgotten early colonial encounters, through settler communities that flourished in the 19th century to the traces that remain in shell middens, mossy cellars, and overgrown stone walls, the more than 700 islands that make up the Eastern Shore Islands archipelago have a long and fascinating history. This lecture will share these stories and discuss the community directed research project that brought them to light. * Featuring some new content for those who attended a previous version of this lecture.
All welcome, refreshments served.
Time: 2:00 PM
