Underground Halifax: Stories of Archaeology in the City (Paperback)


Across North America and beyond, urban archaeology is enjoying a widespread and growing popularity, as people are drawn by its sense of mystery and the alluring prospect of discovery. The individual authors of the narratives within Underground Halifax tell stories with a “human face,” bringing people and events—some ordinary, others famous—back to life, and doing so with objects as well as words.  Each author in the volume employs an array of illustrations of what once lay hidden underground—map, photographs, and sketches—as well as drawings and photographs of unearthed structures and artifacts. Once you’ve been given a glimpse at what lies beneath the layers of Halifax, walking the city’s streets will never be the same again.
