Archaeobotany at Cap-Rouge

Not what you would expect in a CanWest newspaper: a substantial and well-written story about archaeology. This one is about work going on at the 1530s-era outpost of the Cartier-Roberval exploration of the St. Lawrence. [Thanx to John Grubber for the link]

Late update: That's 1540s-era (1541-43), as I should have known even without re-reading the story. And speaking of CanWest, apparently its shares are in a death spiral. Maybe there really are consequences to publishing lousy newspapers!
