How urban archeology is reshaping our understanding of Toronto's early immigration history

A talk by John Lorinc (BSc 1987 UC)

Freelance journalist and editor, contributor to Spacing, The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Walrus

Urban archeology holds out the potential for offering alternative ways of understanding a city's social history. Recent archeological work in Toronto in The Ward shows how immigrant communities that settled in the city in the late 19th and early 20th century lived in ways that were markedly different than the depictions of alien, impoverished and morally suspect slum dwellers that not only dominated the discourse a century ago but set in motion the move to raze the area.
