Upper Fort Garry Field School Excavation 2014

  • Laura Michelle Hastings University of Manitoba


Continuing the excavation project of Upper Fort Garry begun in 1972, the Field School Excavation of 2014 determined the location of the southern and western wall foundations of the fort. Through meticulous site excavation, and employing archaeological methods such as trowel excavation, field school participants uncovered numerous artifacts from the era when the fort was in use, and aided in information gathering vital to the completion of Upper Fort Garry Heritage Provincial Park.
