Much later it was the place where Inuvialuit met and interacte with newcomers from the South, notably explorers, whalers, missionaries and traders from southern Canada, Europe and the US. Most of the information in the book results from archaeology which occurred on Herschel Island between 1990 and 1992 as a part of the Qikiqtaruk Archaeology Project."
