UnEarthed: Geology and Archaeology of Lake of the Woods


We all know Lake of The Woods as a beautiful place with a rich history. Have we ever stopped to think about the history and the resources that can be found beneath the surface? We would like to take you on a journey of discovery, examining what can be found in our own backyards; or under them. UnEarthed is an exhibition that will explore geology and archaeology of Lake of The Woods and Northwestern Ontario, with hands on examples of different things we find below the surface. Come learn about mineral resources, archaological discovery, repatriation, and more at Lake of The Woods Museum this spring.

Both the Hudson’s Bay Company and the Northwest Company operated on the Lake of the Woods, and would often sabotage each others equipment at portage sites.
