Summary

Archaeological assemblages in the Davis Flats North area, near the Williston Reservoir, Peace River Regional District, British Columbia, represent occupations spanning the early Holocene and recent occupations. Site HdSd-371:606 is situated on the western bank of a dendritic channel that bisects a large glaciolacustrian land form. Erosion due to the reservoir has impacted the site, and archaeological materials in the area likely do not reflect accurate

depositional provenience. Artifacts have been exposed to wind, water, sunlight, and dust storms (Roger Eldridge, personal communication July 14, 2015). A large diorite smoothing stone associated with Site HdSd-371:606 was recovered from the modern ground surface and submitted for protein residue analysis.
