A study of surface-mounted door locks from a number of archaeological sites in Canada: R64-81/1979-25E-PDF

In the first monograph, "A variety of surface-mounted door locks and some of their accessories are described and illustrated. For the most part these date from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition, a brief history of door locks and an extensive glossary of terms for the description of door locks are presented. There is some general indication of dating, but for the most part a specific date is not attached to individual examples of a lock form" [p. 4]. In the second monograph, "In 1816, after 23 years in the western fur trade, North West Company wintering partner John McDonald of Garth retired to eastern Upper Canada where he lived as a country squire until his death 50 years later. He built an impressive residence, now called Inverarden, in the Regency Cottage style in 1816. This report, prepared as part of the Inverarden restoration programme, outlines McDonald's retirement career and traces the construction of and later modifications to his house. It also deals with the historical landscape" [p. 154].
