Archaeological sites have continued to grow in the last twenty years in our region, as archaeologists find artifacts dating back several thousand years. Archaeologist Frank Craig says “There are 24 recorded archaeological sites within the municipality of Prince George.” Our region is known to be riddled with culture depressions that were once used to store materials. Sometimes within those depressions artifacts are found and archived. Exploration Place is a repository where some of those items are kept. This summer, Exploration Place will open a first nation gallery, so the public can see samples of the treasures found in our community.
