Method and Theory in the Archaeology of Interior Salish Rock Art Sites on the British Columbia Plateau.
Author(s): Chris Arnett
Interior Salish rock art sites on the British Columbia Plateau are multi-component assemblages which include the geomorphology, the rock art and other surface and subsurface elements such as trails, manuports, petroforms, hearths, lithics, radiocarbon dates, flora and fauna. Defining the inter-relationships of these components is essential to understanding the site formation process. In addition, direct historical and cultural continuity between these sites and Interior Salish descendant communities allows conventional archaeological methods to combine with inter-generational knowledge of place and time (indigenous theory) to give finer resolution to the interpretation of site activities.
