As part of the Placentia 350th Anniversary celebrations, come enjoy “Discover Placentia,” an event that invites authors or speakers to give a reading and/or talk. Hosted by the Placentia Area Historical Society, as well as by Placenta 350, Inc., the seventh event welcomes researcher and archaeologist Steve Mills.

For years, Steve Mills has played an important role in the archaeology of the Placentia area by directing and conducting excavations in addition to completing the associated historical research. In 2007, he shared his knowledge and expertise in an archaeological field course supported by the Town of Placentia, Service Canada and the College of the North Atlantic.

For his talk, Steve Mills will share his understanding and interpretations of the history that, since 2006, has been revealed in the annual archaeological excavations in Placentia as well as through historical research. He will also take some time to present some of the findings from the analysis of artefacts discovered during the most recent excavation this past summer.

We’ve all seen the cluster of determined and committed archaeologists working at the various sites over the years in Placentia. So, come listen to Steve Mills as he explains some of what they’ve discovered and learned!

  • Location: Placentia Bay Cultural Arts Centre
