Exploring the Past in Canada

With lively cities in the east and vast open landscapes in the west, Canada is one of the World’s top ten tourist destinations. A relatively young archaeological heritage offers visitors over twenty thousand years of cultural history. In the westernmost Yukon region there is evidence of the continent’s earliest people, while at the other end of the country are the remains of the first European settlement in Newfoundland left by the Vikings.
