The Highwood River’s tale : impacts to heritage resources by the 2013 southern Alberta flood

Description

In 2014, Stantec Consulting Ltd. carried out an in depth survey of the Highwood River valley for archaeological, historic, and palaeontological resources. In addition to revisiting known sites and recording new ones, the project provided risk assessments relative to flood related impacts and site management strategies. New sites were recorded all along the Highwood River and several known sites were found to be much richer than previously thought. Additionally, numerous new Quaternary microfaunal, macrofaunal, and palaeoenvironmental sites were recorded during the palaeontological survey. This paper presents a brief summary of the program, including a case study of a joint archaeological and palaeontological locality. 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.
