Archeologist Gilles Samson and a piece of history

In 2008, I photographed the Cartier-Roberval Park archeological site where Gilles Samson was working. Now that it has become an exhibition at Musée de l’Amérique Française in Old Quebec, I took a portrait of Samson with the first item found on the site that lead to the discovery of the first settlement of Quebec City, more than 60 years before the city was founded. The Gazette story is a great piece that you can read here.
