In September and October 2007 a group from Tshikapisk again joined Dr Stephen Loring of the Smithsonian Institution's Arctic Studies center in continuing research into Innu history.This fall activities again combined field surveys with excavations of known sites. Most of the latter work was concentrated at a site within the Tshumushumapeu complex provisionally dated to within 5000 to 6000 years BP. The work produced calcined bones and apparently "good" charcoal from a hearth feature so we hope for a radio carbon date from this site before too long.
