Abstract: Archaeobotanical and archaeoentomological analyses were conducted on soil samples taken from an early 19th century privy found at the îlot des Palaissite (CeEt-30) in Quebec City. The insect and seed remains identified inform us about the consumption habits and the daily lives of the city’s inhabitants, during a period of great political, economic and social changes. In fact, the early 1800’s were marked by a population increase, the arrival of a large number of Anglophone immigrants and an accelerated development of the shipbuilding industry. We argue that despite the implementation of new trade networks and culinary traditions, a part of the French Canadian foodways remained relatively unchanged. Thanks to this research, we now have a better understanding of the impact the first decades of the British rule have had over New France’s old capital and the daily lives of its inhabitants.
