Hilary Doda on what we can learn from a button

Check out this fascinating article by the Fountain School’s own Hilary Doda!

Her post, published on Borealia, a blog that features stories about Early Canadian History, is all about a button made of green glass and silver-coloured plating and what it can tell us about a 270-year old Acadian settlement at Beaubassin where it was found.

Sleeve button, green paste jewel in plated setting. 7B17N2.01, from Beaubassin. Photo by author, with thanks to Parks Canada.
