Peter Pope

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is sad to announce the death of Dr. Peter Pope. He began teaching in the Dept. of History at Memorial University but later joined the Archaeology Unit, eventually becoming Head of the Dept. of Anthropology and Archaeology and an Honorary Research Professor. He was also director of the Newfoundland Archaeological Heritage Outreach Program. In 2001, he was awarded the President’s Award for Outstanding Research in recognition of his achievements in uncovering the past and preserving it for future generations. He will be remembered for his impeccable research covering a wide array of topics including Breton ceramics, John Cabot, waterfront archaeology, the early cod fishery, French material history and so much more. Dr. Pope will be sorely missed. We extend our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. (thank you to the Centre for Newfoundland Studies for the original post)
