Industrial Heritage Nova Scotia (IHNS) was founded in 1996 to bring together people interested in the preservation and interpretation of Nova Scotia's rich industrial past. Our group meets to present and discuss our common history, visit sites and undertake site recording using archaeological techniques. Industrial heritage consists of the remains of industrial culture which are of historical, technological, social, architectural or scientific value. We are also interested in industrial archaeology, an interdisciplinary method for studying documents, artifacts, human settlements, and landscapes created for or by industrial processes.

Dear Members and Friends,
As announced at our last talk, we have partnered with the Museum of Industry and the Nova Scotia Archaeology Society to put on an artifact cleaning workshop to process some of the hundreds of artifacts that came from our 2016 Albion Mines Foundry dig at the Museum. The event will take place on May 27, 2017, and is a free drop-in event anytime from 10am to 3pm.
Please see the attached poster, and feel free to circulate as you like. This event is ideal for those of you who could not make it to the dig - we hope to see a few of you drop by to see what we have uncovered!
