Beothuck Archaeology in Bonavista Bay
- Published: January 1977
A contribution to the archaeological identification of the Beothuks, this study presents data on the settlement pattern and lithic assemblage from four coastal sites in Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland. Radiocarbon dates ranging from A.D. 210 to 905 suggests that this bay, if not the entire island, was cohabitated by Dorset Inuit and the Beothuks. It is theorized that these Natives are derived from the previous Maritime Archaic occupation and are a direct link to the historically known Beothuks. Published in English.
