This dissertation explores the traditional marine management systems of the Northern Coast Salish in British Columbia, Canada. Combining traditional knowledge with archaeological data, this dissertation seeks to understand the long-term history of ancestral Northern Coast Salish marine resource...
I discuss the coastal occupation history of the Coast Tsimshian in terms of the distribution of known archaeological sites in the Prince Rupert Harbour, located on the northern coast of British Columbia. I identify patterns in site selection behaviours that emerged over the past 5000 years since...
Doctoral thesis which adopts an approach designed by Binford to examine how muskoxen were exploited by the Copper Inuit who lived on northern Banks Island during the nineteenth century. A set of food value indices are developed for muskox anatomical parts, which are used to predict how the...
Breathing New Life into Old Records: Analysis of the Muhlbach and Stelzer sites on the Northern PlainsDownload
In the early to mid-1960s, two important excavations of major Besant archaeological sites were carried out on the northern Plains. In Alberta, Ruth Gruhn uncovered the Muhlbach site beneath a farmer’s yard, revealing a large bison kill site with a lithic assemblage dominated by Knife River Flint...

This thesis investigates the archaeology of the Miskweyaabiziibee (Bloodvein River) within the Woodland Caribou Signature Site (WCSS) in northwestern Ontario, focusing on the Late Woodland through Postcontact Periods. The project was enhanced by the unusual availability of complementary...
This thesis documents Agate Basin archaeological remains in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. By extension, it examines the context of the rapidly changing Late Pleistocene/Early Holocene environment. A database of information on Agate Basin sites in the study area is assembled. Site...
Recently documented ice patch sites in the southwest Yukon are ideal for evaluating precontact hunter-gatherer land-use patterns in the western subarctic. Located in the alpine of the mountainous regions of the boreal forest, ice patches are associated with well preserved hunting equipment,...
A Knife River Flint identification model and its application to three Alberta ecozone archaeological assemblagesDownload
This study presents a reliable and economic model for achieving an accurate Knife River Flint identification, utilizing a macroscopic, microscopic and ultra-violet methodology supported by an experimental protocol. Correct identification of Knife River Flint is essential for understanding of...
Masters thesis. Presents a technological analysis of nineteenth century Copper Inuit antler artifacts from several sites on Banks Island. The island was occupied by Inuit involved in salvaging large quantities of raw materials from a cache abandoned there in 1845 by a British exploration vessel.
A Quantitative Analysis of Promontory Cave 1: An Archaeological Study on Population Size, Occupation Span, Artifact Use-life, and AccumulationDownload
Promontory Cave 1 on Great Salt Lake, Utah exhibits an incredible level of preservation rarely seen at archaeological sites. The high proportion of perishable materials provides a unique opportunity to study cultural remains that are usually lost to taphonomic processes. Extensive radiocarbon...
