The Forks National Historic Site of Canada - Archaeological Artifact Catalogue

Jezik, Sandra, Paul Downie and Lori McKinnon

This artifact catalogue was prepared as a guide to the inventory of Forks artifacts stored at the Western Canada Service Centre in Winnipeg. Consisting of a dataset of 151 reference collection artifacts, it reflects the following periods: Precontact (ca. 8000 B.P. – AD 1737); Fur Trade (1737-1821); Northwest Company Forts Gibraltar I & II (1810-1821); Hudson’s Bay Company Fort Garry (ca. 1821-1882); Hudson’s Bay Company Experimental Farm (1836-1841); and Railway Period (1888-1988). Artifacts were recovered during archaeology testing programs in the summers of 1984, 1987, and 1988 in the areas of Forts Gibraltar I and II, the Railway Period occupation, North Point, and during the public archaeology program from 1989 to 1991.
