Detecting Economic Variability in the Red River Settlement.

Brenner, Bonnie Lee A. and Gregory G. Monks

This article presents a method for establishing relationships reflecting wealth of archaeological assemblages by comparing archival and archaeological records of the Red River Settlement (1830-1970). Findings suggest that relative economic position can be observed based on ceramic and faunal assemblages, allowing individuals left out of written records to be included in economic variability discussions. Methods and data, historical background of the settlement, and descriptions of the sites and assemblages (Garden Site 1845-1868; Delorme House 1856-1879; Riel House 1849-1900+; Fort Garry 1821-1852; Lower Fort Garry1833-1911; Upper Fort Garry 1835-1882) are discussed in detail.
