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.
Our talks, always open to the general public, begin at 7:30 sharp, at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Scheduled talks for 2018-19 will include:
February 4, 2019 Nova Scotia's Hockey Stick Evolution
March 4, 2019 South End Railway Cut and Ocean Terminal, Halifax
April 1, 2019 Trucking and Milk Delivery
May 6, 2019 Windsor Textile Factory
Dear Members and Friends,
Our first talk of 2019 is Nova Scotia’s Hockey Stick Evolution: Facts versus Fables. The talk will be presented on Monday, February 4, at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. The doors are open at 7-00pm and the talk begins at 7-30.
David Carter is a Communications Designer with the Nova Scotia Museum. While guiding the Windsor Hockey Heritage Society’s exhibit plan and installation at the Nova Scotia Museum’s Haliburton House in 2011, he became intrigued with the arguments surrounding ice hockey’s origins. David has been re-examining game history and recovering missing links, in serious fashion, for more that 8 years. A major focus for his detective work has been the evolution and manufacturing of the hockey stick, and this work will be the theme of his talk.
We look forward to having you join us for the evening.
