With every scrape of an archaeologist’s trowel, stirring of a pot, or planting of a seed, we’re coming a little bit closer to understanding the history of the Colony and the lives of the people who lived here.

Think early Newfoundlanders lived in hovels on a diet of fish, fish and more fish? Think all Catholics were persecuted and women were second class citizens? Think again! Imagine a place where substantial stone and timber-frame houses lined a “prettie” cobblestone street, where Protestants AND Catholics worshiped in peace, and a woman held most of the power!Established in 1621 by Sir George Calvert (the First Lord Baltimore), the Colony of Avalon is widely recognized as the best preserved early English colonial site in North America. Today, on-going work at the Colony is changing the way we understand that past.

Join the on-going quest to uncover the Colony. It’s all happening right here, right now, right before your eyes. Want to see how you can become an archaeologist for a day, 1/2 day, or an hour? Click here: ARCHAEOLOGY DIG PROGRAMS
