Planning for Change

Given the importance of the archaeological record for the cultural identity and sense of place of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, for its globally significant cultural heritage (e.g. UNESCO heritage sites at L’Anse aux Meadows and Red Bay), and for its economic value through cultural tourism, it is critically important that heritage managers make informed decisions about which sites are most at risk and which at-risk sites should be prioritized for action. The CARRA project will generate knowledge and guidance to inform these decisions through four tasks:

  1. Refine coastal archaeological risk assessment approach
  2. Review approaches to archaeological resource prioritization
  3. Document adaptation actions with respect to at-risk archaeology resources
  4. Develop case studies on management responses to at-risk coastal archaeological resources
