Nova Scotia Road Trip! - 2002

Louisbourg is a reconstructed French city, the largest reconstruction in Canada and probably in North America. The aim of the archaeologists, historians, and interested citizens was the recreate the city as it was in 1744. Using the foundations and artifacts recovered in the digs, not mention thousands of written records, drawings, and maps in France, Britain, the USA, Spain, and the Vatican, the builders carefully rebuilt the homes, government buildings, barracks, taverns, stores, Kings Bastion, walls, gates, cannon mounts and embrasures as they would have been in 1744.
