Summary

Airplane sites in Newfoundland and Labrador tend to be in isolated locations, and are often resting in bog environments. Due to the nature of bogs, neither underwater nor terrestrial techniques are adequate for the proper survey of these sites. Similarly, the isolation of sites means investigators are limited by the equipment they can carry. As such, methods must be combines and adapted based on the characteristics of each aviation site to achieve the most accurate and detailed survey possible. This paper will look at some of the techniques used on various aircraft archaeology sites in the province.
