These pages were produced by Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History, based on the archaeological digs conducted since 2002 on the site of Fort Ville-Marie and Callière's residence, in Old Montréal.
 
The site is located in the area classified as "Montréal's birthplace" by the Quebec Department of Culture and Communications (MCCQ) in 1999.
 
These digs are the fruit of a valuable partnership between Pointe-à-Callière and the Anthropology Department of the Université de Montréal, which trains archaeology students. Annual internships on the site are offered for future archaeologists and allow them to learn about methods and techniques used on a real dig, with data interpretation and publication of results. They also add to our understanding of Montréal's past.
 
Financial support for research
Quebec’s Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine, the Ville de Montréal, under the Agreement on the cultural development of Montréal, the Université de Montréal and the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation.
