Caribou hunters in the western Arctic : zooarchaeology of the Rita-Claire and Bison Skull Sites by David A Morrison ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 151 libraries worldwide
"The Rita-Claire and Bison Skull sites offer glimpses into a poorly known aspect of Inuvialuit life, namely, the autumn trek away from the coast to procure caribou meat, hides, and other materials. Through a detailed study of the caribou bones found at these sites, we are offered a better understanding not only of Inuvialuit life but also of the strengths and weaknesses of current methods of zooarchaeological analysis. The study explores many aspects of site formation processes, factors that condition the composition of bone assemblages, methods for inferring the age and sex of caribou skeletons, and the implications of these findings for understanding Inuvialuit history. Many of these topics are relevant to all studies of large animal bone assemblages."--BOOK JACKET.
The Sjovold site : a river crossing campsite in the Northern Plains by Ian G Dyck ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 149 libraries worldwide
"Compared to the spectacular bison-kill sites for which the Plains region is justifiably famous, relatively little is known about the more ordinary aspects of ancient everyday life. Where did people make their homes? Why were particular sites chosen? Who might occupy a given camp and how long might they stay? What activities were carried out? The Sjovold site, situated on the west bank of the South Saskatchewan River in the far northern Plains, offers a long and detailed archaeological record with which to address these questions. People camped here more than twenty times over a period of 3,200 years, from 1850 B.C. to A.D. 1350. This book describes and interprets the findings from excavations of each encampment through this long sequence." "Locally, the Sjovold site offered shelter from the prevailing winds and access to the rich resources of a wooded creek valley. More generally, it seems to have been near the boundary between two vegetation zones: the grasslands and the aspen parklands. It is also near the Missouri Coteau, a long line of broken hills used historically as a war road. Perhaps more important, however, is its proximity to one of the few good river crossings in the region. This study specifies the criteria for defining and recognizing a river crossing campsite. It also explores many features of life in ancient times, inferring, along with the cultural and historical framework, societal dimensions such as group size and gender, trade and travel, as well as a wide variety of daily activities."--BOOK JACKET.
Fort Reliance, Yukon : an archaeological assessment by Donald W Clark ( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 139 libraries worldwide
Initially founded by Francois Mercier as a small, semi-independent fur-trading post, Fort Reliance is of particular interest and importance because of its role in opening the Yukon to prospecting and mining, which eventually led to the Klondike discovery. The trading post became the primary focal point for what one author has termed the "Prelude to Bonanza." The location was also a pre-Gold Rush Han Athapaskan settlement, with a unique and somewhat enigmatic set of semisubterranean houses. Traces survive of the original structures, and possibly of all structures ever built there. This study describes the history of Fort Reliance, assesses the nature and extent of archaeological remains, and examines the relationship between Native use of the site, previously known through the recovery of stone artifacts that relate to a precontact or prehistoric technology, and the trading post.
