The Kassel and Blue Dart Sites: Two Components of the Early Archaic Bifurcate Base Projectile Point Tradition, Waterloo County, Ontario
Type de publication:Conference Paper
Résumé (en anglais):
Archaeological mitigation, undertaken by the Ministry of Transportation in advance of highway construction, has recently resulted in the identification and excavation of two Early Archaic sites, components of the Bifurcate Base Tradition. The description and analysis presented here are of the Kassel site, a base camp, and the nearby Blue Dart site, interpreted as a short term, special purpose activity area, likely used as a kill site or butchering station. These sites provide some of our first excavated assemblages from this Archaic manifestation in Ontario and aid in establishing not only its presence here but also its form.
