Author William (Bill) Finlayson takes on an extraordinarily complicated field of study, and gives us a fascinating look into the Archaeological Excavations of Patterson Village in Vaughan, Ontario. Through the meticulously documented and analyzed “objects dug up from the ground,” we learn how the people of Patterson Village worked and socialized. Dr. Finlayson’s wonderfully descriptive prose, illustrations, and pictures transport us back in time to the mid-1800s where we have a front-row seat to the lives of the people of Patterson Village.

So silently and invisibly does this atmosphere work, we may forget at times it exists. Yet all the great forces of nature—light, heat, electricity, gravitation—are silent and invisible. In all nature, the wonders of the ‘seen’ are dwarfed to insignificance when compared to the majesty and glory of the ‘unseen.’
