An interesting dispute about a copperplate engraving published in 1628 depicting merchants from the Old World trading with Native Americans seems to be settled for now. Canadian archaeologist William Gilbert challenges the traditional interpretation of the scene taking place in New England, but rather interprets it as an early encounter of the English merchant John Guy with Beothuk Indians in Newfoundland, thus making it a part of early Canadian history.
William Gilbert has published his findings in Post-Medieval Archeology; a PDF version of the paper can be found here. Gilbert points out an interesting characteristic of this and similar engravings illustrating the story of the accompanying text: The ships and boats depicted in the engraving are part of an early version of a picture story; they show the same vessel and boat at different stages of the story told.
The controversial engraving is now thought to be a work of Basel-born engraver Matthäus Merian, although the credits of the whole Americae series still go to the de Bry family.
