Book Launch: “The Mantle Site”
February 11, 2013 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PMFree
Archaeological Services Inc. is hosting a book launch at the University of Toronto, in partnership with the Archaeology Centre, for the recently published “The Mantle Site”, by Dr. Ron Williamson (Chief Archaeologist and Managing Partner of ASI) and Dr. Jennifer Birch (Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia).
The Mantle Site is an almost completely excavated, early sixteenth-century, ancestral Wendat community discovered in what is now the township of Stouffville-Whitchurch, Ontario. The site yielded evidence of a complex, well-integrated community of 1800 people living in approximately 60 longhouses, and surrounded by an earthwork fortification encompassing three rows of palisade. Mantle was the culmination of the coalescence of several villages, likely in response to regional hostilities.
The event is happening on Monday, February 11th at 5:30 pm. Please see the PDF poster for details.
