Camp Cove Archaeology (video)

November 16, 2016

With the permission of the Sts’ailes First Nation, HRM Program Director John Welch, videographer Nathan Douglas, and production assistant Eric Simons visited Camp Cove (West Harrison) to record the fieldwork underway at a heritage site identified by archaeologist Morgan Ritchie.

Morgan introduced us to the craggy prominence that once served as a camp and possible lookout for Sts’ailes ancestors, and he explained what he and his field crew were doing and why archaeology is an integral part of project planning as well as First Nations title and rights claims.
