Overview

Dig deep into to the history of some of Victoria's most interesting areas; The Ross Bay Villa, D'Arcy Island, Rodd Hill and the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Archeologists, anthropologists, historians and heritage researchers sift through the soil to unravel the mysteries below our feet, and to explore Victoria's unique cultural landscape. Ancient artifacts, baskets and burial cairns bring to life the rich heritage of First Nations cultures, while everything from badges to bed knobs helps unravel the history of European and Asian immigrants in the Capital Region.

Colourfully illustrated with photographs and historical documents, Victoria Underfoot is an intriguing exploration of BC subterranean searches. The authors' fantastic finds illustrate a history--ancient and recent--that is diverse and deep.
