Seeds as Symbols: Reconstructing the Diet and Life of the Early Red River Settlement, Dawson & Hind Quarterly

Shay, C. Thomas

This journal article states that excavated seeds, charcoal and wood may represent the social status and relationships between groups, and their environment. The samples discussed were from the Hudson’s Bay Company, the Sixth Regiment at Upper Fort Garry, Delorme House and the Garden Site. The seeds listed were excavated from two privy refuse pits (strawberry, raspberry, plum, grape, cranberry, cherry, hazel nuts, walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, pecan, dill and coriander).
