Protecting and Presenting Canada's Submerged Heritage
For over 50 years, Parks Canada's Underwater Archaeology Team has studied submerged archaeological sites across Canada's vast territory. Their research has spanned all periods of human occupation, as far back as 10,000 years before the present, and touched on a variety of sites, from shipwrecks and sunken airplanes to pre-contact fish weirs and clam gardens.
Parks Canada's mandate is however not limited to research and protection of sites, but also focuses on the presentation of stories that are important to the country's history. This free public talk by Marc-Andre Bernier, Manager of Underwater Archaeology at Parks Canada will showcase the work done by Parks Canada's underwater archaeologists, along with their efforts to share history with the public.
