Bonavista Bay Prehistory/Early History Centre
Burnside Heritage Foundation has discovered almost 200 archaeological sites, including Newfoundland's largest aboriginal quarry in Bloody Bay Cove, 5kms by boat from Burnside. The boat tour also visits the former village at the Beaches. See ongoing excavations. People unable to take the boat tour can view hundreds of aboriginal artifacts between 50,000 and 250 years old in the Burnside. A visit to Long Chute Lookout, overlooking Burnside, provides a panorama of a coastal area being studied.

The offshore lines appearing in the map above which purport to delimit the offshore area of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador have no legal effect. Apart from the boundaries established pursuant to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, which include the line established pursuant to the 2002 award of the arbitration tribunal concerning the delimitation of portions of the offshore areas between Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, there are no agreed boundaries between the offshore areas of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada, the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Quebec or the Nunavut Territory, and no such boundaries have been established under statute, regulation or agreement. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has made these facts known to Google.
