Following the death of Canadian artist, Paul Kane (1810–1871), the location represented in his painting French River Rapids was misidentified. During a research project to locate Paul Kane’s sketch sites, the real location was found to become part of Canada’s fur-trade and canoe-route heritage.
Join Kenneth Lister for a discussion of his journey that resulted in the excavation of Kane’s French River Rapids site in a research project that represents the marriage between art history and archaeology.
