The Montague Harbour Underwater Archaeology Project: Final Conclusions and Prospects for Future Research on the Northwest Coast
Twenty-one years ago we completed our last of four field seasons excavating inter-tidal and sub-tidal sediments in Montague Harbour, Galiano Island, British Columbia. While a permit report describing basic results and several analytical publications ensued, a final summary concluding publication remained to be completed. Here we present the essential elements of this forthcoming publication, which will discuss methodology, provide a comprehensive database on recovered artifacts and ecofacts, present sedimentological and facies analyses, radio-carbon dates, and a set of conclusions and propositions arising from our findings. We will conclude our presentation with some thoughts on the future of practical prehistoric underwater archaeological fieldwork on the northwest coast within the context of contemporary research.
