October 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
Port Maitland, “On the Grand” Historical Association will hold its next membership meeting in the Disher Room of Dunnville Library on October 17 at 7:00 p.m.
The guest speaker will be Jacqueline Fisher – Professional Archaeologist, BA, MA.
Jacquie has been running her own company (FAC) for the last 25 years, and has worked in the Dunnville area as well as Eastern and Southwestern Ontario. Her team has worked for the City of Windsor and for municipalities and individuals throughout Ontario.
Jacquie is the Vice-President of the Hamilton Branch of the Ontario Archeological Society, which is hosting the annual OAS symposium this October 28 – 30th held at Royal Botanical Gardens and McMaster Innovation Park.
Jacquie will provide a PowerPoint presentation on some of the aspects of conducting commercial archaeology in the province and the types of sites that she has worked on through the years.
This from CTV Windsor (September 2013):
“An archaeological dig in Lakeshore wrapped up Monday, while construction on the Puce River (Tecumseh ON) bridge expansion along County Road 22 carries on.
Up to 100,000 objects were uncovered during the dig, giving a glimpse back into Essex County history.
Jackie Fisher, lead archaeologist, says now that the digging and dusting are complete, the project moves into the next phase.
‘The actual detective puzzle figuring out is just beginning,’ says Fisher. … It unveiled various items, including pottery, arrowheads, wild bore [sic]tusks and axe pieces. Some things from other regions were found, including the Caribbean.”
This leads to many questions. For instance does Jackie have any explanation how items from the Caribbean ended up on the shore of Lake St. Clair? Are these types of discoveries very common?
