Preliminary Report on Archaeological Investigations in Bonnycastle Park, (Upper Fort Garry), 1982, Manitoba Archaeological Quarterly

Monks, Gregory G.

This is a second report on an excavation in Bonnycastle Park, discussing early historic Upper Fort Garry (1835-1895) and late historic post-Upper Fort Garry. Three cobble and mortar alignments were found to be wall foundations. Two log structures were identified as a privy pit (outhouse), dating to the occupation of the 6th Regiment of Foot, 1846-1848. The pits contained rich deposits of organic materials (including plant remains) in water-saturated matrixes. There are charts and drawings of the stratigraphy, artifact lists and plant analysis.
