Abstract

The excavation of four occupation areas at the Gould site (EeBi-42) in Port au Choix, northwestern Newfoundland offers new insight into the Recent Indian Cow Head complex (2000 to 1500 B.P.). New artifacts, including contracting stemmed projectile points and ceramic vessels are introduced as elements of the Cow Head assemblage and information about housing and settlement data indicate the use circular tent-like structures and the occupation of near-coastal areas. Also present is evidence that Cow Head groups participated in a broad sphere of inter-regional interaction that involved other coeval late prehistoric groups along the Lower North Shore of Quebec, central Labrador, and the Maritimes.
