Newfoundland and Labrador Studies special issue: The French Presence

The latest special issue publication from the Newfoundland and Labrador Studies journal presents a set of papers which focus on the The French Presence in Newfoundland and Labrador: Past, Present, and Future (An Occasional Publication of Newfoundland and Labrador Studies, No. 3 [2016]).

Contributions from Dr. Peter E. Pope, Dr. Lisa Rankin and Dr. Amanda Crompton feature aspects of the archaeology of the historic French presence in Newfoundland and Southern Labrador.

Peter Pope reflects on the nature and various scales of the maritime cultural landscapes of the French fishery of northern Newfoundland, prosecuted between 1504-1904. Amanda Crompton focuses on late 17th century colonial life and soldiering at the important French colony of Plaisance, Avalon. And Lisa Rankin discusses the complexity of French-Inuit relations in 18th century Southern Labrador.
