WMU Fort St. Joseph Booklet Series
Women of New France
Women of New France was the first project in the Fort St. Joseph Archaeological Project Booklet Series. It looks at the roles, legal status, and everyday lives of women who lived in 17th and 18th-century New France.
The Fur Trade
The second book in the series, The Fur Trade , is a valuable resource about the history and archaeology of the fur trade in our local region and in North America. The richly illustrated text traces broad outlines in the North American fur trade, and focuses in on specific examples from the Great Lakes Region and the archaeology of Fort St. Joseph.
NEW RELEASE - Sheltering New France
The third installment in the Fort St. Joseph Archaeological Project Booklet Series, Sheltering New France, showcases the buildings that Native Americans and French colonists constructed. This booklet begins by exploring Native American architecture in the western Great Lakes region and transitions to the construction styles and techniques employed by Europeans when they entered the region in the late seventeenth century. Fort St. Joseph is the final focus, where architectural remains and artifacts reveal the first buildings identified at this site.
