P.E.I. archeologists are starting to dig at an excavation site in Low Point, near Lennox Island, where they hope to unearth an Acadian village from the 1700s.
Provincial archeologist Helen Kristmanson, who is leading the dig, said the discovery provides an unusual opportunity.
“We don’t know a lot about Acadian sites, archeologically. Acadian sites are notoriously difficult to find,” Kristmanson said.
“So this is quite a rare find and it’s going to shed light on an area of history in Prince Edward Island for which we don’t have a lot of archeological information.”
