Canada’s Past

Sharing the Experience

More   than   10,000   years   have   passed   since   humans   first stepped   foot   on   this   land   that   we   now   call   Canada   and, like    characters    in    an    exceptionally    long    fairytale,    we have been leaving clues to our passing ever since. From   stone   spear   heads   made   by   Ice   Age   hunters   who dared   the   treacherous   Beringia   passage   to   evidence   of refined   silver   mining   and   crafting   in   the   Great   Lakes region   over   two   thousand   years   ago   and   ill-fated   19th- century    shipwrecks    submerged    in    icy    Arctic    waters, Canadian      archaeologists      and      historians      regularly traverse   the   complex   and   interwoven   pathways   of   the past    to    reveal    insights    into    the    lives    of    those    who passed before us. But   10,000   years   and   10   million   square   kilometres   is   a lot   of   time   and   space   to   cover   and,   in   a   very   real   sense, our discoveries have really only just begun.
