The Archaeological Land Trust of Nova Scotia

Protecting Nova Scotia’s Archaeological Resources





To preserve Nova Scotia’s history, it is important to identify archaeological sites across Nova Scotia and work with landowners to establish protection for these lands. In doing this, the Archaeological Land Trust of Nova Scotia is fulfilling an important role in preserving Nova Scotia’s history.

You can help by letting us know about important archaeological sites that we might not be aware of. Whether you have only seen some ruins on the woods, or you know the detailed history of the site, let us know. We will examine the information and let you know if the site meets our guidelines for protection.

To tell us about a site, please fill out as much of the following form as you can. You can also get an Adobe Acrobat® version of the form here:

What is the street address of the site

What streets or roads are near the site? ?
