Archaeological artifact

During Heritage Week, explore and learn about this amazing archaeological site. Engage with the late 16th-century artifacts (on loan from the Canadian Museum of History and the Huron-Wendat Museum), experience the 3D virtual longhouse gaming experience (created in partnership with Ryerson University), and oral histories from Huron-Wendat Nation members.

The Jean-Baptiste Lainé Site, which was previously referred to as the Mantle Site, was home to a remarkable late 16th-century Wendat community discovered in southeast Whitchurch-Stouffville between 2003-05 during the excavation for a future development. This archaeological site clearly corroborates Huron-Wendat knowledge and culture in terms of its ultimate origins and deepest cultural identity.
