Newfoundland lies at the intersection of arctic and more
temperate regions and, commensurate with this geography,
populations of two Amerindian and two Paleoeskimocultural
traditions occupied Port au Choix, in northern Newfoundland,
Canada, for centuries and millennia. Over the past two decades The
Port au Choix Archaeology Project has sought a comparative
understanding of how these different cultures, each with their
particular origin and historical trajectory, adapted to the
changing physical and social environments, impacted their physical
surroundings, and created cultural landscapes. This volume brings
together the research of Renouf, her colleagues and her students
who together employ multiple perspectives and methods to provide a
detailed reconstruction and understanding of the long-term history
of Port au Choix. Although geographically focussed on a northern
coastal area, this volume has wider implications for understanding
archaeological landscapes, human-environment interactions and
hunter-gatherer societies. "
