New records of late Quaternary Bison from southern Alberta, and comments on significance of Holocene faunal remains

Description

Recent fieldwork associated with flooding of major river drainages in southern Alberta produced several new records of Bison. Specimens reported range in age from late Pleistocene to late Holocene, and come from localities along Tongue Creek and the Bow River. The finds come from non-archaeological contexts and highlight new collections initiatives at the Royal Alberta Museum, which includes focused collecting of Holocene vertebrates from non-archaeological contexts.
