Flags, Caroline-Isabelle Caron,

This section of the site contains a selection of short explanatory texts prepared by the creators of the site. These pieces are intended to help you understand life and social concerns in Nova Scotia and the Maritimes during the second half of the 19th Century. Would you like to learn more about the geographical and social contexts that Jerome had entered when he was discovered? The place of the Church in Acadian society? The lot that befell the mentally ill and the poor? Or the essential role of oral culture and legends in the Maritime provinces? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
