Abstract

The AA. present evidence for the age of the marine limit of the central Labrador coast which suggests that deglaciation of that coast is considerably later than previously considered. Given these new estimates the ages of glacial lakes Naskaupi and McLean must also be considered younger than previously thought. The persistence of the Laurentide Ice Sheet margin on the central Labrador coast until 7 600 yr ago probably restricted the northward movement of early prehistoric people into northern Labrador
