CARRA 2013 fieldwork
This field season in September 2013 Christina, Marc and Ariel visited two study areas, Port au Choix and L’Anse aux Meadows. At both of these locations all sites that were accessible were accurately located and mapped with a Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) [see image above]. In addition to mapping the archaeological boundaries, the coastal context was recorded. Observations on the proximity of archaeological resources to the adjacent coastline and any evidence of active erosion were noted at each site (see image below for an example). This work will contribute to the identification of archaeological sites at-risk from sea-level rise.
