Archaeology

Archaeology is the study of past cultures through the discovery and examination of remaining artifacts (things made and used by people). Archaeology also incorporates historical documents, traditional knowledge and oral history in the interpretation of artifacts, sites and places.

Over 12,000 years of Manitoba’s history is represented in the Archaeology collection, dating from the last ice age through the arrival and settlement of Europeans in Manitoba. The Archaeology Department is responsible for managing 2.5 million artifacts recovered from across Manitoba. Each year the collection grows, increasing our understanding of the province.
