Au pic et à la pelle

Follow these Quebec archaeologists as they search the underground of the urban and rural territory for its treasures. From Témiscamingue to Saguenay, from Gaspésie to Montmagny, from Québec City to Montréal, for archaeologists, there are no remote regions. There are only living environments that are waiting to be studied and preserved. Meet Quebec’s best archaeologists in their daily lives. Go behind the scenes and follow them in sometimes extreme conditions where they are left in the middle of nowhere in a helicopter, or have to work long hours in the dust. Whatever their field of expertise, these men and women have undertaken a noble endeavor: investigating our past.
