By NIC SWJIIAKT Herald Staff Writer COLISMAN Actual oil-site work will halt early next week near here at one of only four provincial archeological exca- vation projects dating to B.C. The archcological crew, con- sisting of (our University of Calgary .students under the supervision of an assistant pro- fessor of archeology, have manned the site five miles west of this coal mining centre since June 1. Dr. Brian Reeves, project di- rector who is working out of Park lownsitc, said his crew helped survey the lo- cation of tho new Highway 3 slated for construction in the Crowsnest Pass and at the same time looked for possible archc- ological excavation sites. Of the 62 locations that show- ed definite signs of possible historic human habitation and three buffalo jumps sighted in the region, only four remained intact. The rest had been des- troyed by recreational and in- dustrial development or by Ihc highway or were within a town. With a grant from the Har- vey Foundation of Calgary, private group, the team was selected from students at the U of C and the plans for the excavation were completed. the crew dug each level of I pie read a book, il can lie very 'file by 500-foot pri- rectangle mary excavation site, selected for work this year because of the per.ding highway construc- tion, is the first archeological work in Ihe Crowsnest I'ass. First, three test digs were made to ascertain which area in the primary region was the richest in historic value. Jim Calder, a graduate stu- ate student at the U of C who is field director for the project, raid the six foot by six foot square test hole chosen for cx- >ansion proved difficult to dig >ecause of the gravel found under ground. The crew, including Marie Murray and Patrice Taylor of j Calgary, dug until they to a level they knew supported human habitation about B.C. Encouraged by this, a backhoe machine brouglu in and the B.C. habitation level was found about five feet below ttie surface of the ground. The final excavation mea- sures eight yards by four yards. This size was attained by digging five foot deep holes measuring the standard two yards square. Using trowels and shovels, earth in each starxlard square until they finished the entire the earth was dug it" was put through a spe- cial .shaking screen to catch all the rocks and bones, baring them of as much soil as pos- sible. The screenings were then washed and searched by hand for the man made arti- facls found in the 214 months of the dig. Cataloguing all the artifacts anil hones daily after the eight to nine hour work days, the crew will now go back to the university lo start analysis of their findings. They will des- cribe all the samples and try to interpret who inhabited the region, attempting to recon- struct the various cultures as accurately as possible. is Ihe important part of ttie said Dr. "Tho project cost a lot of money, so accurate records are an important part of the work. Knowing where the artifacts came from in the dig is very important. Working through the differ- ent layers of earth in the walls of the excavation can by very dull for the average person, but through the eyes of a man who reads rocks like most, peo- ARCHEOtOGlCAL DIG IN CROWSNEST Patrice Taylor digs on the floor of first archeologicol dig in the Crowsnest Pass while Marie Murrey scrapes rocks from Ihe five-foot wall.

The latest occupation of the L'Uion, thought by Dr. Ileevcs IK: as early as 1200 A.D. to s late os 1750, was just 25 indies from the surface. In this layer of earth, a wide ariety of took including arrow leads, scrapers and knives were :ound. Animal processing tools were also found. Hones from bison, sheep, deer, elk, moose, beaver, fish, dogs ami birds were found in this layer. Dr. Reeves said this indicated that the people who lived in the period had good Imnlir.g conditions in the reg- ion with a lake, the mountains and some open grassland. The second latest occupation of the region was found at a gravel line in the wall, dated to the time of Christ. This line indicated the last lime the area had been flooded. Below this line was a thick layer of brownish colored dirt, dated to 1000 B.C. Dr. Reeves felt this was formed during tho lime of the last major Alpine glaeiation period. During (his period, ice was formed in CSa basins of the mountains, bring- ing fine kilt and dirt down the valley melted water. During this period, lie said, all the environment and vegeta- tion was considerably different. Below the brown dirt is a dis- j tinct line of buried soil which Is similiar to the dirt on the sur- face today. The content indicat- ed open grassland, lacking only the present tree growth. Below this line was an area gravels, probably deposited streams about 3000 B.C. The real find of the dig, the soil layer indicating hab- ation at 6000 B.C. was found low the gravel area. Here projectiles like spear .ads arrow heads were und with knives and scrapers ade of flint. The content of e earth indicated a stable jrface at tiie lime with creek owing through the region of dig. Dr. Reeves feels the last yer was formed during ttie alley glaeiation period at, a jne when the region was cov- red by glaciers. I5e said there as likely a tundra type of nvironment at the time, with )ld, wet conditions prevalent, ikely the mean temperature the lime was four or five de- rees below the mean tempera- ure of today with about twice 10 precipitation then. Jim, who also managed to upervise about 15 different olunteer students through the ummcr, said it was a very ood site with a largo range f animals and artifacts. He said the Kootcnai v.ere likely the last people to inhabit the region. Tho crew hopes to bo back in the same dig next year to expand their findings. The other tlu-ee sites which are rflH intact should excavated soon, said Dr. Reeves. lie said ho would like lo five years and Ihoroughlv search the entire region aii the jiisiury i--i Itrai. Tuiever.
