Issue 657 Volume 3 Number 157
It's Friday, November 25 2022 and any time Andrew King has a new story on Ottawa Rewind, we're all ears, err eyes. This time, King investigates an ‘out of place artifact’ found during a 1912 archaeological dig of an Iroquoian agricultural community of about 1600 persons from 500 years ago.
