Quaternary Consultants Ltd.
Monitoring of mechanized excavation and drilling allowed for recovery of diagnostic artifacts and recording of stratigraphic profiles. Artifacts were recovered from 2 main periods of deposition: around World War I and post-1950. The following categories were represented: architectural objects; lighting and manufacturing equipment; medicine; communication; food processing; commerce; clothing; recreation; adornment; transportation; faunal and floral remains; storage, cooking, ornamental containers; dinnerware. A brief historical overview covers the early 1820s to 1955, and stratigraphy is detailed by layer.
