"Spirits of Earth and Water" is the first major exhibition on the prehistoric Dorset Eskimo culture. For over 2000 years these ancient Eskimos inhabited the Arctic and some sub-Arctic regions east of Alaska, reached northward to Greenland and southward to the island of Newfoundland. This exhibition focuses on the expression of the Dorset culture in Newfoundland and Labrador. Newfoundland and Labrador have a rich inheritance from the Dorset period of prehistory, which began 3000 years ago and continued to 500 years before the present. This legacy is reflected in the large collection of Dorset culture artifacts housed in the Newfoundland Museum in St. John's. This collection, numerically the Museum's largest, is the product of over twenty years of careful and dedicated archaeological work on the island and in Labrador. In fact, the most intensive archaeological work has been conducted within the past 10 years in Labrador, where new and exciting finds have gradually added to our understanding of the Dorset and other Arctic cultures. Indeed, the last decade could be regarded as the beginning of serious study of the Dorset culture across the Arctic. ... (Au)
