A former archaeological site in Nova Scotia is now inundated at high tide. The rich artifact-bearing soil has been washed away, and with it all the Indigenous pot fragments, stone tools, animal bones, and cultural features it once contained. Only a few flakes from making stone tools remained scattered amongst the boulders. (Photo: Matthew Betts)
Greg Nolan (left) huddles under a makeshift tent on the remote west side of Williston Lake in northern British Columbia. The image was taken in June 1984, shortly after Nolan and his colleagues were stranded on the mountainside by their helicopter pilot after access had been cut off by a landslide. (Photo: Greg Nolan)
