About Bonspiel!

This site uses digitized collection material from Library and Archives Canada to trace the development of curling from its earliest origins in Canada to its present form. Each section of the site is named after a part of the playing surface.

The Hack (1500-1800) examines the controversial origins of curling and explores its foothold in British North America.

The Hogline (1760-1850) looks at the early development of the sport as it crossed into Canada.

The House (after 1850) explores the development of curling as a Canadian sport and how it shaped, and was shaped by, Canadian culture.

Burned Stones: Curling Lore highlights interesting stories and personalities that are hallmarks of the sport in Canada.

Some of the original materials that have been digitized include minute books, constitutional documents, letters, documentary artworks and photographs.


Many people have offered their expertise and experience to the development of this website:

The site content was written by Doug Robinson, with the generous research assistance of Danny Lamoureux (Canadian Curling Association) and Myron Momryk (archivist, Library and Archives Canada).

Photography for the site was provided by David Knox.

We also gratefully acknowledge the contribution of the Department of Canadian Heritage, whose financial assistance through Canadian Culture Online (CCO) made this work possible.
