The 2 papers in this volume are the result of the long term work on the Central Coast of British Columbia by the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University. The papers are based upon graduate theses presented to the department in 1976 (Chapman) and 1977 (Apland). They have been abridged somewhat but have not been updated or revised. Since these are the first reports on Central Coast archaeology to be published in this series it is in order, by way of introduction to review the history of the department's work in the area. Geographically the area begins with the north end of Vancouver Island and associated mainland coast. It extends northward some 400 km across the Queen Charlotte Sound to a point south of Douglas Channel. The topography varies dramatically on any eastwest transect from low lying outer coast to the inner coast with its deeply incised fjord-like inlets. Historically the area includes the traditional territory of the Bella Coola, parts of the southernmost Haisla, the Hieltsuk, and much of the southern Kwakiutl area.
