A river of knowledge : observations and lessons about archaeological resources from the Southern Alberta Flood Investigation Program

Description

Alberta Culture and Tourism initiated the Southern Alberta Flood Investigation Program following the June 2013 flooding in southern Alberta to understand how historic resources had been affected during the event and to provide information about effective management of these historic resources in the future. Reconnaissance of nearly 485 kilometres of rivers and creeks in southern Alberta led to the examination of 243 archaeological sites. Results of the program provide new insights into Alberta’s Protohistoric Period. The program has provided a legacy of baseline archaeological information that can be used to monitor archaeological resources within southern Alberta’s dynamic riverine landscapes. 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.
