Description

The 2013 flood has presented an unparalleled opportunity to document historic resources sites exposed by the flood event. In a 2015 flood assessment survey along Tongue Creek, 20 new archaeological sites and 12 palaeontological and palaeoenvironmental sites were documented. This survey has shed light on the late precontact use of the valley by Indigenous people, including large-scale communal bison hunting practices. Part of the 37th volume of the Archaeological Survey of Alberta Occasional Paper series, which contains 18 articles exploring multiple facets of the impact on archaeological resources of the 2013 flood in southern Alberta.
