Update on Kivallek Archaeology Trip (Audio)

A group of Archaeologists went to Kivallek an old Inuit village not far from Okak.

Peter Whitridge is an Archaeologist.

He says that he had been near Okak at an archaeological site called Kivalek which is basically the Inuit village where people were living before the Moravian mission was established nearby and then people gradually relocated.

Whitridge says that his team dug up very small test pits and discovered mittens, animal bone, charcoal, ground slate and chert.

Susan Haye and Jonathan Lidd were the two students who had gone with him from Nain.

After Whitridge and his team came back from Kivallek, he held an open house at the NICG.
