AbstractThe Labrador Archaic site of Nulliak Cove 1 contains the highest number of reported longhouse structures yet recorded. Since its discovery in 1968, this site has played an important role in the interpretation of Labrador Archaic culture history, despite the limited attention paid to the site as a whole. This thesis attempts to address some of the problems associated with this limited understanding of Nulliak as a large scale site. -- This investigation of Nulliak Cove suggests that there are recognizable continuities in Labrador Archaic cultural traditions over the millennia. This runs counter to our current interpretation of the Labrador Archaic as a population who underwent marked and rapid culture change at various points in their history. Understanding this continuity within Labrador Archaic culture allowed for a reinterpretation of Nulliak Cove that suggests a long period of occupation at the site but also recognizes that change did occur due to both external and internal forces.
