A History of Canada in Ten Maps Adam Shoalts – Author, Explorer, Archaeologist, Historian
Adam Shoalts has been called one of Canada’s greatest living explorers and in 2017 embarked on a 4000-kilometre solo journey across Canada’s Arctic.
Every map tells a story. And every map has a purpose – it invites us to go somewhere we’ve never been.
A History of Canada in Ten Maps conjures the world as it appeared to those who were called upon to map it. What would the new world look like to wandering Vikings who thought they had drifted into a land of mythical creatures? Or to Samuel de Champlain who had no idea of the vastness of the landmass just beyond the treeline?
Adam Shoalts, one of Canada’s foremost explorers, tells the stories behind these centuries-old maps and how they came to shape what became “Canada”.
This event is hosted by the Grimsby Historical Society.
