I lived in Ferryland from 1957-59. My husband was the peninsular doctor. I heard about the dig from Isabell who works in Chapters and whose mother works in the dig lab. Amazed and excited!! Good luck with the work.

While living in Newfoundland several years ago, I was fortunate enough to visit Ferryland and the dig there. It was absolutely fascinating and I would recommend it to anyone who has the least interest in history or archaeology. It is such a rich site and if I return to Newfoundland next year I will visit the site again. My dearest wish is to someday work/volunteer there.

I currently work with youngsters at a history museum here in Massachusetts and one of the lessons is to get the students to appreciate what archaeologists can do and what they can contribute to the understanding of who we are.

I see there was a william short and a christopher short who were residents of Ferryland in 1696 when they were displaced after a french attack. They made petition to William 111 from Appledore. My family - The SHORT family have lived for generations in Appledore and I wondered if there may be any connections with the Short's of Ferryland. Can anyone throw any light on this? If so email me at tonechris85@hotmail.com

While walking today down a sidewalk near MIT, about a block from Fort Washington, I found in the usual litter the very sharp outline of what looked like a piece of pipe, so white and clear it looked like plastic. We'd had a very rainy summer, with flooding in some places. This must have washed out of some construction area: the pristine (almost) bowl of an eighteenth century pipe, with the letter "D" in relief on the side of the orange-stained bowl. It's fascinating. Which side was the smoker on - Rebel or Tory? Grateful to find this site...

My father is from Ferryland. His name was Clarence Ryan. He is passed away eight years now. Our family will be going there this summer to stay for the week end and take a look at where his family lived. We are so excited about it.

I have to let you guys know that the Colony of Avalon Arccheaelogical Site is fantastic. Not only is it interesting and historic, its also allowing the loca economy of the the Southern Shore to grow. However, you guys need to make your website more presentable. It's funtional, but not very appealling. It does not give justice to the wonderful archaelogical dig it represents.

I have visited there 2 years ago and I thought it was very interesting, I grew up in Newfoundland and did not know Colony of Avalon even existed. Many of the people here still do not know it exists. I tell who I can about it though.

A wonderful site. Our two visits to the site in 2005 were great and only enhanced by the personnel involved in conducting the tours. We are looking forward to visits in 2006. Keep up the good work !

I think your tour needs more detail and more hands on work like a dig on how the workers found such great artifacts and how to do it

I believe this site has provided me the names of some of my ancestors. George and William Morry and Robert Alward on my fathers side and John Yard on my mothers side. Mt parents left Newfoundland in the 1930's, R. Michael Aylward and Mary Ellen Yard. I would appreciate any information concerning my family.

Hi, I just thought I would tell you that I lived in the house that is now the museum in Ferryland. When they talk about it being a doctor's office that would be my Dad, Dr. Kurt Adler. My brother(who also was born in Ferryland) and I, hopefully will be visiting this spring, so your site was very helpful.Do the iceburgs still go by in spring and what time of the year would be the best to see them,We left in 1957 and have not been back since, so I am really looking forward to it, thank-you very much. adler1@shaw.ca
