On August 21, three of our volunteers attended the unveiling at City Hall of the finds discovered during an archeological dig which took place at Lebreton Flats over the summer as part of the environmental assessment of the City of Ottawa’s new Light Rail Transit System.
The most interesting item was an 18th century cavalry sword that was found under what would have been a back porch. WHM volunteer and heritage advisor Ken Clavette did an interview for CBC Television (watch it now) and Metro News (read it now) regarding the dig.
Here are some photos from the event.
