The artifacts that initially were found were projectile heads, or arrowheads, as well as clay pottery,” said Essex County’s engineering contracts manager Peter Bziuk.

There is a provincially mandated process that is part of the environmental assessment to ensure that archeologically significant discoveries are preserved.
