The collection of archaeological objects and searching for archaeological sites within the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is restricted to licensed archaeological investigation under the Historic Resources Act. Archaeological objects have in the past been, and continue to be, found by local citizens, who may or may not be aware of the legislation protecting the Province’s archaeological heritage. If you do find an archaeological object or discover an archaeological site please contact the Provincial Archaeology Office.
Protecting our archaeological resources is a collective action that we can all participate in. Thank you for reporting your archaeological discoveries!
