Upcoming Exhibit

This in-house exhibit will focus on the Fraser River Bridge archaeological site located in Prince George.

The site’s location is relatively close to the current confluence of the Nechako and Fraser Rivers, at a location 4 km southwest on a large paleo-channel of the Nechako River bisected by a paleo-channel of the Fraser River.

This site is the first to significantly shed light on the earliest occupation of the north-central interior of BC. It has proved what local Indigenous knowledge holders and oral histories have been saying all along—in this place, for thousands of years, Indigenous peoples have met the challenges of their environment and followed the rhythms of the seasons. Radiocarbon dating suggests occupation for at least 9,000-10,600 years.
