The staff of the Centre for Newfoundland Studies was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of eminent archaeologist and historian Dr. Peter Pope. Dr. Pope was a long time researcher in CNS dating back to his M.A. (1986) and Ph.D (1992) work on seventeenth century Ferryland. He began teaching in the Dept. of History at Memorial University but later joined the Archaeology Unit, eventually becoming Head of the Dept. of Anthropology and Archaeology and an Honorary Research Professor. He was also director of the Newfoundland Archaeological Heritage Outreach Program. In 2001, he was awarded the President’s Award for Outstanding Research in recognition of his achievements in uncovering the past and preserving it for future generations. To him the award meant that “…the university appreciates the kind of inter-disciplinary work historical archaeologists do and that it continues to support research in the social and historical sciences.” He was an award winning author as well, earning praise for works such as Fish into Wine and The Many Landfalls of John Cabot. Fish into Wine is such a meticulous work of scholarship that in CNS, we consider it a reference tool. He will be remembered for his impeccable research covering a wide array of topics including Breton ceramics, John Cabot, waterfront archaeology, the early cod fishery, French material history and so much more. Candace Cochrane told us that "More than anyone he brought the history and meaning of the French Shore to the people who lived there by helping them discover it through what was lying under their feet, on their beaches, in their sheds, and their stories. A pretty big accomplishment". Joan Ritcey, Head of CNS, described how Dr. Pope gave lectures on the same topic twice in one day at a symposium but made them completely different, equally fascinating and enlightening. Dr. Pope will be sorely missed. We extend our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
