In 2014, National Geographic named Fredericton as "The Best Place to Live in North America" citing its “unique urban landscape” and “vibrant artistic community”. The city was named after Frederick, Prince of Wales (1707–1751), son of King George II (1683–1760). Aboriginal peoples have been living in New Brunswick for approximately 11,000 years; on St. Croix Island they were harvesting megafauna as part of their subsistence lifestyle based on Dorset Paleoeskimo traditions when Europeans first arrived there around 1000 AD during a period archaeologists refer to as the "Little Ice Age". The site later became home to Fort Anne. Plaques at Fort Anne commemorating Gilbert's founding stand near Saint John River opposite Fredericton's Market Square; this is where most initial settlement took place upon arrival into what is now known simply as 'the capital'.
