Newfoundland, North Atlantic Rugged Coastline, Canada, 02

Description : Newfoundland is the cradle of civilization in North America. It is the region where Viking adventurers landed in Anno Domini One Thousand and One and named the newly discovered country Markland, or Land of Forest.

Between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, hardy folk from the west of England and Ireland settled in the sheltered bays along the rugged shores to catch fish. In the small villages and towns that grew from the early settlers efforts, their descendants still pursue a way of life that has changed little over the centuries. Words and expressions that were familiar in Shakespeare,s day still grace the tongues of coastal residents.
