The site where the "Vieux fort" was built has given rise to a controversy amongst the few historians who have expressed an opinion on the subject.
So it is our belief that the "vieux fort" was on the plateau to the north-east of Placentia, that it dates back to a time prior to 1662, and that it was then perhaps reinforced by a battery on the south point of the gut.
The only reference to the fort in our possession is the very brief mention of it in Du Perron's letter which tells of a "grande loge de pieux couverte de terre, qui est autant comme rien." At that time there were four cannons in the fort.
