  Abstract:  In order to document the impact of climate changes on Thule and Inuit activities along the northern coast of Labrador, Canada, geomorphological and paleoecological investigations were undertaken at the Oakes Bay 1 site located on Dog Island. The island is about 40 km from Nain in the Labrador Sea (Fig. 1). The Oakes Bay 1 site consists of seven semi-subterranean sod houses located in a boggy terrace on the north shore of Oakes Bay. In general, the semi-subterranean sod houses are sub-rectangular with only one room and an entrance passage which is about 10 m with a cold trap. The walls of the houses were generally built of peat and wood pieces.

Key words: Dog Island, paleoenvironment, human occupation, geoarcheology
