Prehistoric artifacts unearthed in Canada
Workers at a housing project in Sheshatshiu, central Labrador (Canada), have uncovered 3,000-year-old artifacts, including tools and weapons. What started as a housing development has evolved into an archaeological dig. "It's the time period that's the least studied in Newfoundland and Labrador archeology, so it's going to hopefully fill in a lot of gaps and help to answer a lot of questions," said archeologist Scott Neilson, one of the project's leaders. The artifacts will be sent to St. John's for dating and returned to Labrador to be displayed there.
