The Sheguiandah Site (BlHl-2) is a National Historic Site designated by Parks Canada, based on its age and the ancient quarry pits in the quartzite knoll, and stone tool workshops dating back about 11,000 years. The Sheguiandah Archaeological Site is dedicated to preserving, studying, exhibiting collections of artifacts that tell the story of the Anishinabek and earlier indigenous cultures who lived and worked on the site.
In the second phase of the development of the Sheguiandah Archaeological Site SCR designed 10 Metal Cutout Art Installations, along with Trail Signage and graphics. The Art Installations were respectfully designed and crafted, with the goal preserving the history, integrity and beauty of the site, bringing a radiant sense of identity. The Sheguiandah Archaeological Site will be offering guided tours of the hilltop site starting summer 2019.
SCR has been lucky enough to get to work on developing this project with the Town of NEMI and the help of Dr. Patrick Julig.
