BOOK - History of Port Royal/Annapolis Royal, 1605-1800
By Brenda Dunn
Published by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 2009

Softcover... 27.95 (C$)

Today, Port Royal/Annapolis Royal is a quiet community of approximately 600 people, but the town of Annapolis Royal was once the centre of early European settlement. It was the capital first of Acadia, then of Nova Scotia, and an imperial battleground in the struggle for control of North America.

The cover illustration is a view of the Town and fort of Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia taken on the spot by Capt. J. Hamilton of His Majesty's 40th Regiment. of Foot circa 1753, two years prior to the Acadian deportation.

Backed by the Historical Association of Annapolis Roya, Brenda Dunn, former historian at the Fort Anne National Historic Site, has documented the long, dynamic, and unparalelled history of this fascinating place called Annapolis Royal.

What people are saying about this book:
  • "With insightful anecdotes, new research, powerful images, and attention to detail, A History of Port-Royal/Annapolis Royal 1605-1800 carefully examines the major events, battles, treaties, fortifications, and historic figures connected to the national context of our history, interweaving them with details of life in Annapolis Royal. The Historical Association of Annapolis Royal and all lovers of Canadian history are indebted to Brenda Dunn for showcasing the town as a significant player on both the national and the world stage during these two centuries. This book, published by Nimbus Publishing, is the standard against which all other books about Annapolis Royal will be judged, and is the major contribution of the Historical Association of Annapolis Royal to the commemoration of four hundred years of European settlement in the area. Step back in time. There is something in this book for everyone." - Alan Melanson, President, Historical Association of Annapolis Royal
