old information still golden

This summer it seems my major volunteer effort is going to be assisting with the gathering of heritage and archaeological information inventory for some townships in Simcoe County, the original site of the Huron people.  Interestingly enough,  the starting point is some archaeology reports prepared by Andrew F. Hunter in the period 1900-1910 for the Minister of Education for Ontario.  I have built a prototype database in Microsoft Acess 2007.

I find it intriguing that this information over 100 years old is still the base foundation for archaeological work in this part of Ontario.
