Mapping the Buffalo Lake Métis Wintering Site

Author(s): Aaron Coons; Kisha Supernant

Year: 2015


Mapping techniques change over time, and with that we are presented with new ways of visualizing and recording information at archaeological sites. Although work was undertaken at the Buffalo Lake Métis Wintering Site for a number of years in the 1970s, since then newer technologies such as Total Stations and RTK GNSS receivers have allowed for accurate maps to be more easily created at the site scale. This poster looks at how our understanding of the spatial organization of the cabin features at the Buffalo Lake Métis Wintering Site has changed as a result of our ability to more confidently locate them within the landscape, and provides an update on recent work that has occurred during the 2014 field season.
