After radiocarbon dating of plant matter, wood and wood charcoal, scientists estimate that the presumed histories of several key indigenous sites in Canada, as relates to first contact with Europeans, are incorrect by about 50 to 100 years. The findings suggest that European trade goods previously used to date individual locations are not in fact good chronological markers and that the history of notable "contact-era" events in northeastern North America during the 15th to early 17th centuries may need to be revaluated.

That pot sherd from the Mantle site was for one of the Haud's cannibal feasts. The "corpse face" represents a dead enemy.
