Location:    Columbus Community Centre (232 Spencer St. E., Cobourg)
Canada is a Northern Nation. Canada's Arctic makes up over 40% of our landmass and is home to more than 100,000 Canadians. It is an essential part of our national identity and it is vital to our future. Come explore the history, art, landscape and contemporary issues affecting the people of the North. In the centuries around 1000 AD, three human populations met along the coasts of the eastern Canadian Arctic. This talk summarizes the discoveries of the Helluland Archaeological Project and contends that—far from being an isolated region—Arctic Canada was the focus of early meetings of Old and New World peoples and involvement of the Americas in the global economy.
