AIA Toronto Lecture: From Mastodons to Parliament

Dr. Ron Williamson from ASI will be speaking for the AIA Toronto Society’s Winter Lecture Series:

The first European settlement of Toronto was simply a continuation of patterns that had been in place for thousands of years. The Indigenous occupants of the encampments and semi-permanent villages that lined the former water courses in the City left no written record of their lives. Their legacy consists of the oral histories and traditions passed on to descendants and the surviving traces of those settlements. This talk will summarise this rich archaeological                                                               record and discuss how the City of Toronto is ensuring its conservation.
