Geography
Country: Canada
State: Alberta

Coordinate: 49° 38' 0" N, 114° 36' 51" W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: "on the north bank of the Crowsnest River at its outlet from Crowsnest Lake"
"Radiocarbon dates on bison bone from level C were 2260 +/- 310 B.P. (RL 865) and 2380 +/- 130 B.P. (RL 863)" and there were no dates from A or B
this interval "contains a mixture of late Middle Prehistoric and Late Prehistoric material" and based on the late Middle Prehistoric assignment "perhaps" dates to "8500 to 7500 B.P."
Climate and habitat
Lithology: siltstone
Taphonomic context: human accumulation
Archaeology: stone tools
Habitat comments: "Excavation proceeded by arbitrary levels" and apparently was confined to "up to one metre of light brown silts, grading up to one metre of colluvium"
projectile points were found in all levels, and the accumulation is implicitly attributed to hunting
the site is not described as a midden and there is no mention of ceramics or structures
