Berton Award to web team

The UVic-based team who created the Great Unsolved Mysteries in Canadian History website has won the 2008 Pierre Berton Award, presented by Canada’s National History Society for outstanding work in popularizing Canadian history. “It’s like the Pulitzer Prize in our field,” says Dr. John Lutz (history), one of the project’s three historian co-directors. Unsolved Mysteries invites students to “solve” mysteries plucked from Canada’s rich history while developing their research skills.
