This week two archaeologists stopped by the archive I work at. These particular archaeologists have in recent years been focusing on Residential Schools. Prior to their visit I had not considered the tremendous value that archaeology can add to ongoing research relating to Residential Schools. The majority of my work focus on textual records, photographs, artifacts, and oral history -- leaving me far away from archaeology field work. Material culture and archeology speaks to areas of the history of Residential Schools that is not captured in historical documents.
