Extraordinary Finds at Sheshatshiu Archaeological Dig

Years of painstaking digging in the dirt is really paying off in Sheshatshiu. Artifacts thousands of years old are being uncovered in an archaeolgical dig. It's all being done to make way for new houses to be built in the Innu community. And as archaeologists dig deeper, a picture of who lived in the area is also taking shape. Our John Gaudi dropped by the site in Sheshatshiu to take a look at work that's being done.
