This paper presents the results of Park Canada’s 1984 excavations at The Forks. The excavation recovered remains from: modern times (1950-1984), railway (1880-1950), pre-railway/post-Fort Gibraltar I (1826-1880), immediate post-Fort Gibraltar I (1826), Fort Gibraltar I (1810-1816) and pre-Fort Gibraltar I (pre1810). The layers analyzed include the Experimental Farm, 1826 flood, and several middens (ash-filled pits and a cribbed cellar). There was evidence of 9 to 10 prehistoric occupation levels (with three dates), pertaining possibly to Blackduck. There are a map and photographs.
