Archaeology Talks at The Rooms: Archaeology in Sheshatshiu and The Beothuk along the Exploits River

 The Newfoundland and Labrador Archaeological Society and The Rooms are presenting a pair of talks this evening (April 2, 2014) and tomorrow afternoon (April 3, 2014).

Scott Neilsen of MUN's Archaeology Department will be introducing the archaeology of Sheshatshiu, Labrador. Scott has been working closely with the community to uncover an important Intermediate Period site, which is providing new clues to a poorly understood time period in Labrador archaeology.

When: 7PM, Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Where: In the theatre at The Rooms, St. John's

Laurie McLean, an archaeological consultant in the Province, will summarize the results of his recent surveys of Beothuk sites located along the Exploits River and shores of Red Indian Lake. He'll talk about the condition of the sites, their significance, and the threats they face.

When: 2:30PM, Thursday, April 3, 2014
Where: In the theatre at The Rooms, St. John's

If you are in the St. John's area, be sure to come out for these talks.  If you are unable to attend in person, the NLAS will be live-streaming and archiving the talks on the NLAS Arch Youtube Channel. If you would like to view the talks live, simply visit the youtube channel at the scheduled start time and enjoy the live stream. The talks will remain archived there, so you can tune in at a later date as well.
