Public invited to join in historic Beaubassin dig

FORT LAWRENCE - A piece of a centuries-old wine bottle, a lot of ceramics and a personalized smoking pipe carved to better fit the maker's mouth.

"We love this thing because it's so much for one singular person," remarked archeologist Virginia Sheehan.

These are just a few of the artifacts uncovered in Parks Canada's archeological dig under way at the historic Beaubassin-Fort Lawrence site here, after a week of digging.

Today a new component of the project began, one that opens up the dig to the public through a new tourism initiative.

"We're offering a new visitor experience for the Chignecto area, where the public can pay to participate in a one-day dig at Beaubassin-Fort Lawrence," said Parks Canada spokesperson Geraldine Arsenault.
