Brock Street Burial

Brock St , ,

Human remains and early First Nations burial pieces, including hand tools, were found during construction in December 1960. Following excavation, Archaeologist Walter Kenyon thought that the important burial items and human remains should be preserved and took them to the Royal Ontario Museum. On March 2, 1972 the ROM returned the artifacts to Peterborough. In 1988 the remains and some of the associated grave goods were repatriated to the Curve Lake First Nations. A small part of the parking lot has been declared an Aboriginal Cemetery under the Cemeteries Act. In 2010, a ceremony was held at the Brock Street Burial, and a permanent memorial was left to mark the site.
