Abstract

The Sabbath Point site (DeBd-08) consists of a single, large, hexagonal-shaped Beothuk housepit. The housepit is remarkable in many respects: for its large size and uncommon design; for having (so far) escaped destruction from logging and flooding; for seemingly not being embedded within a large cluster of other housepits; for yielding abundant and well-preserved faunal remains and a few extraordinary iron artifacts; for dating to a pivotal moment in Beothuk history; and for remaining undiscovered for so long
