Fantastic Finds: Archaeology in Newfoundland and Labrador

Display Date: 
Level 2 Atrium

Ever wondered about the histories hidden underground and at the bottom of the ocean?

This exhibition explores new and exciting archaeology discoveries in our province. From a 1400s English gold coin found on a beach, to ancient pottery fragments that shifted understandings of Labrador’s early peoples, from a mystery cargo of mid-1800s rifles snagged up from the ocean floor, to a collection of teeth extracted by a long ago dentist, druggist, barber or jeweler on Water Street–the scope of archaeological discoveries in Newfoundland and Labrador is astounding.
