Barbour Site's Display of the Seal Hunt - The Human Side

Creator(s): Barbour Living Heritage Village

Newfoundland has a vast history involving the harvesting of seals. The negative side of the seal harvest, however, often overshadows the hardship endured by the individuals involved in this fishery. This exhibit emphasizes the plight of the sealer and the human drama of men pitted against the harsh elements of the North Atlantic.
