Book Description

Oct. 15 2008
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Colourfully illustrated with photographs and historical documents, Victoria Underfoot is an intriguing exploration of BC subterranean searches.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.

5.0 out of 5 stars History such as rum runners, centuries old gardens and homes Jan. 10 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
History sits beneath everyone, but only a few have the guts to explore it. "Victoria Underfoot: Excavating a City's Secrets" looks at the city of Victoria in British Columbia and its excavators, people who would typically not be expected to be seen in an urban area, still dwelled in the modern day. History such as rum runners, centuries old gardens and homes give a picture to the yet unrecorded history of the grand fathers and great grandfathers of today's people. "Victoria Underfoot" is a must for anyone who views a century ago as interesting as a millennium ago.
