Archaeology Review

In 1981 the Historic Resources Division of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador produced the first volume of Archaeology in Newfoundland and Labrador. This journal quickly became a reliable source of information dealing with archaeology in this province. Printed copies of this journal were produced up to 1986. I have seen files that would suggest a volume for 1987 was in the works but was never completed.

In 1996 & 1997 there was an attempt to revive the journal in an online form; unfortunately that attempt was short lived.

In 2002 the Provincial Archaeology Office started their own version of Archaeology in Newfoundland and Labrador. Initially it was intended to be a newsletter entitled the Provincial Archaeology Office Newsletter and the first few volumes reflect that intention being less than 20 pages. From volume 3 to volume 4 the newsletter jumped from being 30 pages to 70 pages. By the time volume 5 came out the name was changed to the Provincial Archaeology Office Review. Since volume 6 the Review has been more than 100 pages and has essentially replaced the Archaeology in Newfoundland and Labrador journal.

Today the Provincial Archaeology Office released their largest volume of the Provincial Archaeology Office Review yet at 193 pages. This volume covers archaeology news from the 2013 field season throughout the province and includes a submission on archaeology in Quebec.
