An archeological dig in south Mississauga has unearthed remnants of the city’s past.

An Indigenous settlement dating back 2,400 years has been uncovered at a former residential property on the corner of Stavebank Road and Premium Way, according to Ward 7 Coun. Nando Iannicca.

“It predates the Roman Empire. That’s extraordinary,” he said at the Nov. 8 council meeting.

The archeological dig was part of an area assessment required by the province prior to the twinning of the QEW Credit River bridge project. This project will see the construction of a new bridge while the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) repairs the existing structure.
