The Phoenix of the North

  • Kenneth E. Kidd


The site of Sainte Marie I (so called in order to distinguish it from another site of the same name, to which the inhabitants moved in 1639) will always remain a place of prime significance to Canadians. Foremost of all, it is hallowed ground to Roman Catholics, for here lived the first Canadian martyrs to their religion. Secondly, it was the first French establishment west of Montreal. Thirdly, and of more importance for the present study, it was the first major historic site in Canada to be excavated along modern, scientific lines, and the report on it is probably the first full-scale one on any important historic site in North America. One possible exception to this may be F. W. Hodge’s report on the excavation of the New Mexico village of Hawikuh (Smith et al. 1966). If there are others, the present writer is unaware of them.
