Click here, then type Bayers Lake Mystery in the Title box, and press search, to access full articleAn article by Kim Moar has been printed on p. 3 of the Monday, March 21, 2005 edition of the The Daily News (Halifax, NS, Canada) titled Bayers Lake mystery wall baffles archeology buffs. It reports on efforts to form a non-profit group to help preserve this site, and others of archeological import in this Province. Quoting from the article:
One such site is a so-called “mystery wall” discovered several years ago during an expansion of the Bayers Lake Business Park. Extending more than 200 metres and measuring as high as two metres, the stone wall is baffling many historians.
“Nobody is quite certain what it is … We can’t find any records,” [Jeff] Turner said [spokesman for the new Archeological Land Trust of Nova Scotia].
While no one knows for sure when it was built, archeological experts believe it was likely constructed between 1749, when Halifax [was] founded, and the early 1800s. The site also includes the footprint of a large, five-sided building, with compartments and an unusual set of stone steps seemingly leading nowhere.
While some have suggested it’s a military ruin, there’s no record of that, either.
“The military history of Halifax is really well documented, and this thing does not show up,” Turner said.
David Christianson, a curator of archeology with the Nova Scotia Museum, said yesterday while many people believe the wall and structures are the work of soldiers, others have more romanticized ideas about who built it.
Some believe it was built for Prince Henry Sinclair in 1398 during a legendary search for the Holy Grail. Other[s] say it is evidence of an advanced, pre-Columbian civilization.
Christianson said while none of the artifacts found at the site so far would suggest that early a beginning, there’s been very little archeological work done at the site to prove — or disprove — any possibility.
This site is also the continuing focus of much of my personal research. It is actually only one part of a much larger context of anomalous stonework and earthwork in the vicinity. A careful study of early French documents going all the way back to 1595 makes it quite unlikely to have been of French colonial origin either. I’ve attached a few of my own photos as illustrations of the Bayers Lake “Mystery” Walls. (TJD)

I wanted to locate the wall to photograph this area to send to a friend to search with different types of light to see what might not simply be visible to the naked eye or normal process, I have been to the museum, however the directions to location of this is vague and I have yet to loacate the wall, I have no GPS. for guidance so have to rely on mouth to ear. Can you assist in this search. I have been to See Mr. Ogilvie for a permit, but he has stated that for my research a permit wasn't really required as no movement of anything is required. Can you help with this Please. Arthur Irving merimart@eastlink.ca J.W. St. Andrews #1

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to
start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Have you ever considered about including a little
bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
But think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the
best in its niche. Superb blog!

Sad to see so much spam in the comments. Visited the "walls" yesterday with a friend. Can't believe how close the latest construction is to the site. Shows how little we care about and for our past.
