Early engraving of English meeting aboriginals traced to N.L.

A famous 17th-century illustration showing English explorers meeting New World natives on the Atlantic shore - identified for decades by American scholars as an early depiction of contact-era New England - has been reclaimed as a piece of this country's history after a sleuthing Canadian researcher traced the origins of the image to a well-documented 1612 encounter in Newfoundland.

The 380-year-old engraving shows two members of an English exploration party - their ship anchored in a quiet bay in the background - trading goods on a beach with a group of feather-dressed aboriginals who had arrived by canoe.

The illustration - first published in 1628 - has for years been described by U.S. historians as a sketch based on a 1602 encounter in Massachusetts involving Bartholomew Gosnold, the English adventurer who later founded Virginia's landmark Jamestown colony in 1607.
