L’archéologie à Québec

A Glimpse into the Quebec Archaeology & Top Egyptian Themed online slots

Revisiting the past, archaeology often helps piece together fragments of the gone era. One of the latest archaeological sites gaining prominence, for its feats and works, in recent times, is Quebec, Canada.

The concept of archaeology became eminent in the late 60s and early 70s in the French Canadian province, Quebec, with the Quiet Revolution. Later, it became one of the most sought-after subjects taught in the University and even had exclusive Archaeology departments, followed by dedicated museums set up by the government. There were also several organizations and cultural societies being formed to further the archaeological activities in the region.

Loi sur la Recherche Archéologique or the Archaeological Research Law governs all the excavation activities. With discoveries made in Quebec dating back to over 12000 years, today, there are innumerable excavation sites, both active and abandoned, in the province.  It was in the 70s that the government realized the immense architectural heritage that lay buried. As part of the initiatives, Maison Nivard-de-Saint-Dizier Museum and Archaeological sites were set up in Montréal. In addition to that, the government also passed the Cultural Heritage Act by the Québec government.

Today, Quebec welcomes visitors from across the globe, who come in to see the historic and prehistoric wealth found by archaeology teams as well as to visit the exclusive museums.
