The Prince of Wales Fort – Canadian Conservation of an English White Elephant
Mar 29, 2023
Time: 1:00pm ET
The New Trans-Atlantic Cable Webinar Series is a joint initiative of the Panel of Historical Engineering Works of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the History and Heritage Committee of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the National History Committee of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering.
Built in northern Manitoba on the shore of Hudson Bay, the Prince of Wales fort is the largest fortification ever built by a private company. The talk will cover why the fort was built, how it was constructed, why it can be thought of as a white elephant and what has, and is, being done to conserve it.

Nigel Shrive has spent many years researching issues with respect to structural masonry. More recently he has developed courses on the conservation of historic structures and has provided advice on what can be done to conserve some historic structures in Canada.
