Cupids Cove Plantation Provincial Historic Site


May 18 - Oct 11

In August 1610, Bristol merchant John Guy arrived at Cupers Cove (now Cupids) in Conception Bay with a small group of settlers. This was the first English settlement in what became Canada. The settlers cleared the land, fished, farmed, explored for minerals, and tried to establish fur trading with the Beothuk. Every summer, archaeologists working the dig site uncover more about the site and the people who lived there.
