Banff prehistory : prehistoric subsistence and settlement in Banff National Park, Alberta
The Rocky Mountains are generally considered as a cultural barrier. Increasingly, archaeological research is showing that this is not the case. The material recovered from Banff National Park, Alberta during 1969 and 1970 demonstrates human occupation for at least 11,000 years in an area of considerable ecological and biological diversity. The distribution of humanly exploitable resources led to the deposition of groups of cultural material which, by their internal composition and context, suggest sets of ethological patterns related to this resource distribution. The thesis is concerned with the description of resources and cultural material and how these reflect the ethological patterns of the groups occupying the study area.
