The best of St John's

by Liam Herringshaw (

Best places:


The Rooms (
– a fantastic museum in a fantastic structure in a fantastic setting. Newfoundland & Labrador's history, natural history, art, culture, archives and architecture, all rolled
into one amazing building. One of the best museums in Canada; if you only go to one
tourist attraction in St John's, make it this one.


Signal Hill (
– walk a few minutes east out of downtown St John's and you're in another place altogether, hundreds of feet above sea level, with a glorious view of the world. A steep climb from the town takes you on a route into a National Historic Site that includes the Johnson GeoCentre, Gibbet Hill, the Signal Hill tattoo, the visitor centre, and the Queen's Battery. And when you get to the top, you've got Cabot Tower, where Marconi received the first transatlantic radio signal, and where you've got a good chance of spotting some humpback whales. If the fog's not in, of course.

Information for Authors

All submissions to the Conference volume should be e-mailed to Duncan.

Our aim with the book is to showcase the current state-of-the-art ichnology in much the same way as Crimes’ Trace Fossils 1 and 2 in the 70’s. Papers/articles should be short and carefully written. The language of publication will be English, authors with English as a second language are encouraged to have their work pre-reviewed by a first language English speaker to help with the reviewing process.

The book will be an e-book published by the Geological Association of Canada, this should keep costs down and make the work more accessible to researchers, students and industry alike.
