Our Archaeology Team was out last Friday working alongside Boreas Heritage Consulting to map burials with Ground Penetrating Radar (a non-disturbance mapping tool) to improve responses to coastal erosion and climate change effects on Mi'kmaw sacred sites. While working to collect GPR data, repairs to erosion mats also began. Although the old coir logs were destroyed, they did protect the features they were meant to and have proven effective at helping to re-establish roots protecting the shores from rapid erosion.
