Recreating Fort William Augustus, Canso, Nova Scotia circa 1744

This summer, Ian needs to make a project for his school. Last summer we did a project about tall ships.
This time, we shall build a minature fort.

Step one, drawing the fort plan, and building the earthworks.
Step two is to then add the toothpicks as the pallisade.
Both Ian and Leena worked on his project. It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

After this project this little fort will take part in many 18th-19th battles.


Unfortunately, the fall and winter of 2014 was a bit damp, and the whole thing got moldy! So this fort has now been consigned to the burnable garbage. I'll have to think on how to rebuilt this with something which can resist mold a bit better.
