"Considerable quantities of bones have been dug up on the same spot on several previous occasions": Saint James United Church hill, Dartmouth

Presented by David Jones

Saint James United Church (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia) is situated on a hill at the corner of Prince Albert Road and Portland Street. Since several years before 1844, human remains have been uncovered on this hill during construction of various buildings such as the church (1870), the church manse (1894) and the church hall (1954). Join David Jones, teacher and local historian, for an examination of this Dartmouth-based archaeological story.

David Jones is a member of the Board of Directors of the Dartmouth Heritage Museum Society and the Nova Scotia Archaeology Society. David Jones is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Nova Scotia).
