Town of L'Anse au Clair

Labrador, Canada

The Jersey Rooms Archaeological Project 2004-2005

Discovered by archaeologists in 1986, one of the early Jersey settlements was at L'Anse au Cotard, located between L'Anse au Clair and Blanc Sablon. This site was the focus of archaeological excavations in 2004 and the development of an interpreted trail in 2005. Three stone structures were identified at the site, which is still above ground. A stone walkway used by the Jersey fisherman is still visible.
