Your site is very informative and the people at the dig were great to talk, As I walked around I came upon the forge and while in the interpratation building I inquired about obtaining a print, They were out of stock. I am still interested in getting a print of the forge. It was last summer 2004 when I was there. Please let me know if they are available and how much to ship to Ontario. Thank You...Les Stanley..

On a sea visit to Sandy Point, just off St. Georges in Bay St. George, I found these little tub like pieces. I brought them home, strung them on a a wire, with some beads that I had made. Only when on another visit that I found a bowl, that my husband said that is an old pipe, did I realize what I had found. Cheers Nice site !!!!!

Wow, what a change from 22 years ago when every Saturday morning our archeaology class would pile into Jim Tucks van and drive to Ferryland for our dig. Do you remember me Patty Wells and Dr. Tuck? Every time I would find something and ask what it was, your response was "slag". Great job.

My husband and I visited Avalon 3 years ago. I was facinated to discover that non-Viking Europeans had settled in Newfoundland as early as the 1620's. At the time, I had bought a couple of reproductions at the shop. Since then, I had wished to buy more, and assumed that I could do so from your web page. The first time that I looked, there was nothing available. I now see that you have put things in motion to make it so. When do you think the E-shopping will be up and running?

In September this year I had the chance to visit your country and I could see your search for artifacts. You got such from around 1620. This is also the period I could disclose the history of my family here in Palatinate/Germany. From literature I was familiar with the name Avalon, but never before I came in contact with the heritage of this place.Observing your work was highly interesting and I wish best success and rich "treasure hunting" to complete the knowledge about your history.

You visitors haven't seen Ferryland till you climb to the top of the'Gaze.' You haven't heard Ferryland till you stand at it shore and listen to the rocks rattle on the outgoing wave. When you have done both of these things..Ferryland will remain in your memory forever.

It would be nice if you had a section for "foreigners". I had no clue as to where and when the Colony of Avalon was. Some minor pointers (current area's name, governmental control, possibly even a current map or even for those more technologically inclined, GPS coordinates) would have been very helpful, indeed. I'm trying to learn history, and accuracy is pretty much everything.

Newfoundland Labrador Heritage Tree, represents all our Provinces people. The first image to be carved on NL Heritage Tree was that of Shanawdithit. Our history books tell us she was the last Beothuck (native) to live in NL. We have fifty images on the HT and room for another that may be in keeping with an event in year 2000.

I found your site while researching my family tree. Somehow the spelling of Calvert was changed to Colvert beginning with Samuel Colvert(1760-1823). I have traced back to Leonard Calvert(1606-1647). Your site has been very educational and has helped with further research into my families heritage. I would love to visit sometime. Sicerely, Steve Colvert
