Overview of the 2001 season
In August of the 2001 season, G. Thériault joined P. Baker’s team along with N. Chénier, student at Université Laval, and F. Lafrenière, professor in Collège de Ste-Foy. This first stage of intensive survey of the site allowed the researchers to discover some 50 new texts and fragments of texts. A small quantity of these texts was discovered by archaeologists in the dig trenches that were open mostly in the monumental downtown. These texts are mostly Greek, though a few rare fragments in Latin (some of which belong to the dedication of a monumental gate, the dipylon found at the junction of decumanus and cardo) complete the collection.
Description of the surveyed sector
The sector surveyed in 2001 included the exterior lower sectors of the north-western and central-western city wall, the surface of much of the lower agora and the south-eastern section of the city, both intra and extra-muros.
