The film Curse of the Axe tells the story of the Mantle site, a 500-year-old ancestral Wendat (Huron) village located near Toronto, Ontario. A team of archaeologists, including Dr. Jennifer Birch of the University of Georgia, use the latest technology to understand the history of the site, the largest Iroquoian village ever excavated, and how a piece off European iron came to be found there 100 years before dirct contact between the Wendat and European explorers. (Running time: One hour and 40 minutes.) Dr. Birch will answer questions after the film.
