Saint-Pierre et Miquelon. Patrimoine Historique / Historic Heritage. Archéologie Publique / Community Archaeology

Lay Summary 

Funded by the MUN Office of Public Engagement, I developed a website (https://patrimoinearcheologiespm.wordpress.com/) and a Twitter and Instagram account (@ArcheoSPM) in collaboration with the Association pour la Sauvegarde du Patrimoine de l’Archipel (AIMARA) to promote the heritage and archaeology of SP&M to the general public. Use of these platforms during 2016-17 research activities showed that they are an efficient way to generate enthusiasm and reach the media (our research in SP&M was covered 15 times by local and international media such as SPM1èr and CBC), and we will continue to use them in the current project.
