Abstract

This thesis is the result of two months of fieldwork done during the summer of 1997 along the submerging southwest coast of Newfoundland. In total, 39 archaeological sites were visited, tested, and recorded along the Burgeo coast from Connoire Bay to Bay de Loup. There is evidence for Maritime Archaic Indian, Groswater Palaeo-eskimo, Dorset Palaeo-eskimo, and Recent Indian occupation in the area. New surveys and private artifact collections supplemented previous research. This thesis considers the relationship of the sites with their environment and provides a new perspective on the precontact settlement patterns of the southwest coast.
