AbstractThis field guide is an updated version of a 1996 Shoreline Monitoring report for Fortress Louisbourg Historical Site. It is designed to assist park staff in locating specific shore sites and line markers for accurately measuring shoreline change following severe storms or during routine patrols. Location maps, sketches, photos, GPS coordinates of markers and tables are provided for examining and recording changes at each shore site. Deterioration and loss of markers at a number of shore sites during the past few years and a focus by archaeologists on newly exposed cultural resources on Rochefort Point and along Louisbourg Harbour necessitated this revision. Additional sites were added in 2011 at White Point and Battery Island. Any information collected or changes observed at any of these sites should be reported to the archaeological group at Fortress Louisbourg for inclusion in their computer data base and assessment of shoreline changes.
