Louisbourg Day 4

Another wonderful day…
Processing…

The Tall Ships are coming!!! The Bluenose was there when I drove in this AM. We had a chance to perch ourselves on top of Black Rock. Birds eye view. Lucky birds. 350 year old graffiti up here, a French solider carved "Louis" into the rock.

Louisbourg Day 3

So many great things today. Working at processing artifacts.
So beautiful! I love puzzles!

Got some fresh air when we checked out a few things around The Fortress.

After Volunteering I headed to Kennington Cove a popular beach nearby.

A truly glorious day!

Louisbourg Day 2

Nice and relaxing today.

Cleaning artifacts.

I found this artifact bag with my excavator initials on it from 2013.

A backlog of artifacts to process. I have my work cut out for me. It's pretty interesting to to see all the artifacts up close. One of my favourite things to do in the Archaeology lab.

Today The NSArchaeology society gathered a group of members to tour the provincial archives.  I was beyond excited.  I fondly remember spending hours going through rolls of microfiche researching my ancestors.  So much fun! That building is jammed packed with historical items.  Vaults of treasures. The Archivists preserve the past events of the province.  Trying to preserve the present for future generations.  I’ve always been aware of the historical importance, I never realized the importance of present day collection of important information.  

There are many types of photographics. Here’s the different types through the ages and when it was most popular.
