The AA. report on 2 faunal assemblages which provide a new perspective on the issue of fishing in the Thule period. These sites, Pembroke and Bell, are situated on southeastern Victoria Island in the region historically occupied by the ‘Copper Inuit’ who are known to have relied on fish to a significant degree, but whose annual subsistence-settlement cycle was notably different from their Thule ancestors. Following description and interpretation of the 2 faunal samples, the AA. consider the sites importance to the broader understanding of the role of fish in Thule economies
