Field Trip to the Fort on St-Helen's Island

On Wednesday, September 27, 2006, Matthieu Sossoyan's Archeology class traveled by bus to Ile Sainte-Hélène to visit the Fort on St-Helen's Island, built between 1820 and 1824. The class was given a guided tour of the buildings and learned about recent archeological work conducted at the Fort.

We invite you to view a few photos taken during this trip which proved to be both enjoyable and informative.
