Phoenix Building (at the University of Victoria)
Presented in the Phoenix Building at the University of Victoria, this exhibition presents an outline of the history of Canada from its origins to 1700. Two hundred and fifty reproductions of archival items from 52 Canadian, American and European institutions, which include maps, engravings, paintings, seals, medals, manuscripts and prints, illustrate the eight themes under study. A caption accompanies each item on display, giving a technical description; the situation in context, sometimes with important extracts; and the source.
