Droulers/Tsiionhiakwatha Archaeological Site Interpretation Center
Around 1450, some 500 St. Lawrence Iroquoians set up camp on the banks of the La Guerre River, where the municipality of Saint-Anicet is located today. Five centuries later, farmer François Droulers found a small axe in one of his fields … Since then, archaeological digs have unearthed the remains and artifacts (some 500,000 of them!) of the largest Iroquoian village ever discovered in Quebec.
Just 75 km from Montréal, the Droulers-Tsiionhiakwatha Archaeological Site Interpretation Centre showcases these fabulous remains and invites visitors inside a faithfully reconstructed longhouse. It all makes for a fascinating encounter!
