Fort Michilimackinac, established by the French in 1715, acquired by the British in 1761 and demolished by them in 1781, was home to a multi-cultural community of soldiers, missionaries, fur traders and their families. It has been the site of continuous historical and archaeological research since 1959. The results of this ongoing project have been shared with the public through a reconstruction which houses living history programs, period settings and museum exhibits. Lynn Evans, Curator of Archaeology for Mackinac State Historic Parks, will discuss the history of the project highlighting how archaeology and history are used together to gain a more complete picture of life on the eighteenth-century fur trade frontier.
