Finding traces of trading places on the Highwood River

Description

Assessment excavations were completed in the fall of 2016 at the Spitzee Post (EdPl-13) and the Metke Site (EdPl-10). Recognizing the value of historic resources along these drainages, these archaeological studies were conducted to assess erosional impacts of the 2013 flood on these two sites. Conclusions highlight the importance of this ford on the Highwood River over the last 5,000 years or more. 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.
