Speaker: Sara Beanlands, MA
There will be a short AGM followed by a talk by Sara Beanlands. Sara will be discussing the major archaeological study she carried out on a farm in the rural community of Poplar Grove that contains evidence of Pre-Deportation Acadian and early Planter occupation. The project offered a unique opportunity to explore the cultural interface of an Acadian/Planter settlement in Nova Scotia. Members of the public who participated in the program included direct descendants of both the original Acadian and Planter families who occupied the site.
