AbstractIn this research, I approach the reconstruction of Groswater subsistence-settlement patterns by examining the mobility patterns of the Groswater people in the Gulf of St. Lawrence area. Based on regional lithic and faunal resource distribution, a predictive mobility model is proposed. The model suggests that the acquisition of Cow Head cherts and the harp seal migration routes form the basis of Groswater mobility in the area. Data from seven sites are examined from the perspective of technological and intra-site spatial organization. The data support the proposed model.
