dc.description.abstract This report describes archaeogeophysical fieldwork activities conducted on July 15, 2014 at the LdFa-1 site under Nunavut Archaeologist Permit 2014-22A. This research was carried out in conjunction with a larger ongoing investigation of archaeological sites and chert toolstone source locations in the deep interior region of southern Baffin Island (see Milne NAP report #2014-24A). Dr. Brooke Milne (CEOS, Anthropology, University of Manitoba) is the principal investigator on both projects. Project co-investigators include: Drs. Robert Park (Anthropology, University of Waterloo), Mostafa Fayek (Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba), and Douglas R. Stenton (Culture and Heritage, Government of Nunavut). In 2014, Dr. Ian Ferguson (Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba) joined the research team to oversee the archaeogeophysical survey at the site. en_US
dc.description.sponsorship Funding for this research was provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada in the form of an Insight Grant (435-2012-1176) awarded to Milne (Principal Investigator), Dr. Robert Park (Co-Investigator; University of Waterloo), Dr. Mostafa Fayek (Co-Investigator; University of Manitoba), and Dr. Douglas Stenton (Collaborator; Department of Culture and Heritage, Government of Nunavut). Mulu Serzu (Department of Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba) and Dr. Rachel ten Bruggencate (Department of Anthropology, University of Manitoba) assisted with equipment inventorying and logistics in Winnipeg. Logistical support in Iqaluit was provided by Rick Armstrong and Mary Ellen Thomas (Nunavut Research Institute). Logistical air support was organized by the Polar Continental Shelf Program (project #67114). The field team was led by the author and included Park, Ferguson, and David Landry (PhD candidate, Department of Anthropology, University of Manitoba). We gratefully acknowledge these agencies and people for their support. en_US
