It’s being hailed as a major archeological find, and it means the Powell River Regional District is going back to square one on plans to rebuild the concession stand at Texada Island’s Shelter Point Park.

An assessment of the area found a First Nation village site that’s at least 33-hundred years old, and may turn out to be largest such site found along the Sunshine Coast.

Colin Palmer is the PRRD CHAIR. He says the discovery means rethinking the whole future of that park.

Palmer says the archeologists discovered building foundations, roads, tools and  hunderds of other artifacts.
