Fifteen years after its initial excavation, the reanalysis of field notes, the final report, and the artifact collection, in addition to communication with the site's original excavator, has resulted in a detailed reconstruction of the main gate at Fort Beauséjour, New Brunswick, Canada. Interpretations generated by this recent reconsideration contribute significantly to what is at present only a scant body of data concerning North American fort gates of the mid-18th century.
