        The Beardmore Relics – E. J. Lavoie 18 November As a bookseller, I love to support regional authors! When Geraldton author Edgar Lavoie flashed his book at me at Word on the Water this year, I was immediately intrigued, too. It was the title that caught my attention.   In the next post, The Beardmore Relics, I recount all that stuff. I segued into slides I took while researching The (literary) Beardmore Relics, focusing on locations in the novel that showcase the grand geographical and historical features of Lake Nipigon and the Beardmore region.

      While Currelly and the ROM had been hasty, even careless, in accepting the Beardmore relics as evidence, we can see how this fit into a pattern of acceptable speculative historical thinking. Where the issues become darker, and even nasty, is when they mustered their academic and social connections, and institutional weight, to thwart contrary.
