Digging Up the Past

Today’s academic lecture - presented by Dr. Jonathan Fowler, an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology – was entitled An Archeological Tour of Halifax. After a classroom introduction to the principles of archeology and an overview of the history of Halifax, students went on an interpreted tour of South End Halifax, where the maps and photographs from the archives examined in class were brought to life. “Today, the city was our classroom,” concluded Dr. Fowler, as the group wrapped up the morning with some treats at a local chocolatier.
