Naturally Deposited Specimens, A 3000 Year Old Native Campsite and Trade Centre at The Forks

Kroker, Sid

This is the third section of the chapter on Shellfish and Snail Recoveries, presenting the distribution of freshwater snails and finernail clams that have the potential to provide data about climate regimen, water quality, and type of riverbed and aquatic and shoreline vegetative habits. The presence of specimens at the site is attributed to flooding, with the alternate possiblity of harvesting by occupants of the site.
