The verdant banks and teeming waters of the Miramichi River system have attracted human visitors for over ten millennia. For the past 300 years, native people have lived at Metepenagiag, a site known now as Red Bank. In Metepenagiag: New Brunswick's Oldest Village, archaeologist Patricia Allen tells why and how settlement began here, explains the artifacts found in the digs, and draws conclusions about the successive inhabitants. She also deals with the effects of European settlement on the land and its people.


Archaeologist Patricia Allen has enjoyed over ten years of research in New Brunswick's Miramichi River district. Work at Red Bank's ancient Oxbow site inspired this publication.
