2016 Flood mitigation excavations at EfPm-267, EePk-253, and EePj-103 (Margaret’s Site) on the Bow River

Description

Excavations at three archaeological sites located on the Bow River in Calgary or in relatively close proximity to the east were commissioned in 2016 in response to the floods of 2013. These three sites were impacted by the floods and are in imminent threat of further erosion and information loss. The three sites produced evidence of site occupations ranging from the Middle Precontact Period through to the Protohistoric and Historic Periods. Most significantly, excavation and radiocarbon dating at EePj-103 and EePk-253 indicate that both sites have evidence of terminal Late Period and/or Protohistoric Period occupations, likely representing portions of the same settlement pattern system on the Bow River at that time. 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.
