The Meath Site Exhibit is one of our new displays in 2023.

The Meath Site was discovered in 1971 by Dr. Donald Robertson and David Croft. Testing and excavation began in 1973 and concluded in 1978. It consists of 10 distinct site locations collectively referred to as the “Meath Site” because of their proximity to the postal area of the same name. It is located near Pembroke, Ontario.

It is a multicomponent site ranging from Late Archaic to Woodland to the “Contact Period”. The artifacts found at these sites are mainly Middle Woodland, but significant material has been found at opposite ends of the Woodland spectrum.

Among the artifacts in the collection are pottery sherds from over a hundred distinct vessels, various stone tools, projectile points, scrapers, quartz tools, debitage, etc. What is on display is only a fraction of the items recovered from the Meath Site.

This new exhibit will feature some of the same artifacts that David Croft carefully selected for his exhibit in the early 2000s, but it will also highlight a number of other artifacts.

This exhibit will be on display until the end of the 2025 season. From October to May, you can make appointments to visit the museum and check out this new exhibit. Otherwise, you can drop by Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm in the months of July and August to see it.
