Aspects of Ethnobotany in the Red River Settlement in the late 19th Century, Status, Structure and Stratification: Current Archaeological Reconstructions

Shay, C. Thomas

This study uses ethnobotany to compare the socioeconomic status between the Métis and the individuals at Upper Fort Garry. The three sites used for this analysis are Upper Fort Garry and two Métis farms along the Red River (Delorme House and the Garden Site). The topics discussed are: The Red River Settlement AD 1845 – 1882, The Archaeological Sites, Archaeological Expectations (1. fruit and nuts [tomato, watermelon, plum, peach, Brazil, almond, walnut, pecan] & 2. charcoal), and Site Comparison and Discussion. There is a map of Southern Manitoba in 1858 and comparison charts.
