Congratulations to Leena Bethune who won the student paper competition at this year’s Council for Northeast Historical Archaeology (CNEHA) conference in Lake George, NY.

Leena presented her paper: “That the whole may be made a prettie streete”: An analysis of the material culture of the 17th-century cobblestone street at Ferryland, NL."

Through her examination of the material culture relating to the street, and by undertaking a comparative analysis with contemporaneous sites in England and Wales, Leena aims to trace the evolution of cultural ideas relating to the building of infrastructure in Ferryland.

Great job Leena!
