A quick visit to Louisbourg, Nova Scotia

After class finished on the first fine afternoon in North Sydney we made a quick run to Louisbourg to take a look at the fort. The fort is a reconstruction of the original edifice built by the French in the early 18th century as part of their defence infrastructure for Quebec City. The British sacked the town and the fort on two occasions. The Canadian government funded the reconstruction of the fort on the original scale and location, following the traces/ruins that remained and the massive documentation records (after all,this was a French establishment) that exist). It is the largest Canadian reconstruction effort, by some distance eclipsing the Viking village reconstruction we saw last summer.

Here is a sequence of photos taken from the short walk from the bus leading to the Dauphin Gate,and going on to look through the Governor's residence and on to the Engineer's home.

We'll take in the rest of the complex at some other time.
