People have inhabited the area that is now Kingston for thousands of years. The region was home to native groups as early as 7000 B.C.E., to French traders and soldiers during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to British and British-American settlers in the eighteenth century, and finally to some of the major figures of early Canada in the nineteenth century. Each of these cultures left its mark on the land; their various legacies contribute significantly to the Kingston of today, and in no field are those legacies more conspicuous than in that of archaeology. (U-E)
