Post-2013 flood historic resource assessments of the Sheep, Highwood, and Bow rivers and their contribution to a regional understanding of the precontact landscape

Description

Historic resources assessments of the impacts the 2013 flood on palaeontological and archaeological resources adjacent to the Bow, Sheep, and upper Highwood rivers in southern Alberta were conducted between 2013 and 2015. These studies visually assessed erosional exposures on these rivers and documented historic resources. Analysis of the location and character of these finds has shed light on the types of landforms present and the nature of human occupations in the Bow River watershed, and highlights how significant the impact of flood-related erosion has been on historic resources. This paper discusses these finds in a regional context to integrate them into the larger geological and precontact landscape contexts of southern Alberta. 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.
