New research using ancient DNA has revealed the genetic discontinuity of the Maritime Archaic and Beothuk populations of Newfoundland. The collaborative work of an interdisciplinary team, which included Memorial researchers Dr. Vaughan Grimes and recent Archaeology graduate Alison Harris, suggests that the island was populated multiple times by distinct groups in the past.
