Montreal's construction workers aren't completing their work on the Turcot interchange. Not in the same way they abandoned this construction site for a year, they actually have a pretty good excuse this time. While crews were digging around a few months ago, they came across some old building foundations and some artifacts according to CTVNews. Work was put on hold so that the site could be explored and what they found was pretty amazing.
In the early 1800s, the site in question was a Village named Saint-Henri-des-Tanneries. The town was named as such because more than half the village worked in the leather tanning trade.

It's just too bad they didn't find any dinosaur bones. Maybe even a new species that we could name. Then the next Jurassic Park movie could have featured a HABSosaurus Rex.
But they did find at least 3 structures so far, but who knows how many there are in total considering the area is roughly the size of a football field. They also found knives, tools, wooden tubs and several other artifacts.
The sad part is that this village will probably end up being destroyed so that work can continue. Once they've dug it all up, they will take a 3D scan to "preserve" the village before it is destroyed.
