(CP) A bleached ant] broken buffalo rilj, possibly hundreds of years old, docs little to excite most people. To archeologist John Brunv ley, it's a page for a history text. Mr. Brumlcy, n University of Calgary graduate student, lieads a 23-mnn team sifting the prairie soil for clues lo the living hnbits of prehistoric plains Indians. "The.sc which have been broken in the process of butchering, arc artifacts in the same sense that on arrow- head he says, pointing to fresh finds at a buffalo kill site. "When a person is going to butcher a piece of meat and he knows roughly what he has in mind, he's going to break a hone in a consistent mariner." Hones broken in the same place indicate the Indians may have preferred certain cuts of meat, lie says. Also, by determining the age of buf- falo teeth, they could tell if Ihe Indians were selecting tender young over older, tougher cows and bulls. TFI.I. OK HUNT The group, supported by the National Museum of Man. has Icarnwl Ihat the Indians built stone laneways which led lo the edges of steep embank- ments. Buffalo were manoeu- vred inlo the lanes, then were frightened over the lull where they tumbled to their deaths "It must have taken a lot of organization simply because they were trying to direct the animals lo a specific place and they couldn't panic the animals at the start because they would scatter. "They bad to place people strategically and know Ihe be- havior and hubits of the ani- mals." liefore white man came, he says, Ibis type of killing was clone without horses or guns. Many of the tools found are made of stone.
