Scientific round table on the pointe à Callière site
On March 13, a round table of archaeologists, professors and students discussed the "pointe à Callière" site. Naturally enough, the event was held at Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History.
Open House days
Visit Montréal’s birthplace and explore the mysteries surrounding the location of Fort Ville-Marie. See the remains of Louis-Hector de Callière’s residence, built on this very site in 1695.
The Quebec archaeology network (Réseau Archéo-Québec) has been presenting Archaeology Month since 2005, from August 1 to 31. It’s a chance to get a close-up look at archaeology, all over the province! Pointe-à-Callière takes part in this event every year, with different activities. Check our calendar for this year’s dates!
“Dig This!” mini-exhibitions
Over the years, the display case near the crypt has presented all sorts of mini-exhibitions on the latest archaeological and historical news. The crypt lies beneath Place Royale and links the Éperon and Ancienne-Douane buildings underground. Check it out next time you’re at the Museum.
A visit to the Field School
“I got up early this morning. It was open house day at the Université de Montréal’s Field School next to the Pointe-à-Callière Museum, on the site where Louis-Hector de Callière’s residence once stood. I’ve been interested in archaeology since I was little, so I just loved visiting the Field School,” explains Samuel Corbeil, age 13.
