A Geomorphological Perspective on the Antiquity of The "Forks", Manitoba Archaeological Journal
This article examines the physical history of the lower Assiniboine River. The area at The Forks has changed over time, and, originally, it did not exist. The topics of the paper are about the Portage la Prairie alluvial fan, changes in the water channel position, and implications for human occupation at The Forks. The dates studied range from 6000 BP to 200 BP. There are maps and charts included.
