A short archaeological survey at Uniacke Estate by the Nova Scotia Archaeology Society
in 1991 led to a full-scale project in 1992. The aim of the project
was to investigate elements of Uniacke's original landscape design
and search for other elements about which documentary evidence
is vague or missing. The project was a success, yielding insights
into the original estate design and gaining a great deal of public
exposure for Nova Scotia archaeology as a whole.
Historical archaeology is one part of a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of the Uniacke Estate, along with archival research, oral history research, and material culture studies. Archaeology can contribute important insights into the Uniacke Estate. For general information see our archaeological field methods page.
Two areas of focus during the 1992 field season were the Hothouse and the Haha Wall. Follow the links below to learn about these interesting finds at Uniacke Estate Museum Park.
