Helluland translates to “land of flat rocks” and is thought to mean the areas around Baffin Island. The stone structure featured on this cover is an inuksuk, a cairn or landmark made by purposefully piling stones on each other. They rarely made the shape of a person and could vary greatly in size, and we can only guess what their use was. They were probably most often used as markers to navigate by and signal the location of camps or hunting routes. Some might have been more spiritual in purpose. Regardless, their presence is a clear indicator that, at some point in time, people were there.
