Synopsis

This volume contains reports on the preliminary findings of archaeological salvage projects carried out
by the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University during the summer of 1971. A total of 26 archaeological sites endangered by industrial expansion, timber leases and logging, park and housing development, or the forces of natural erosion were excavated. In addition, four archaeological surveys of localities threatened by flooding or other activities were conducted. The projects were spread throughout the province from Kimsquit in the north to Kamloops in the east, and from the Skagit Valley in the south to the Gulf Islands in the west (Fig. 1). These activities yielded over 5000 artifacts, and a quantity of other archaeological information, and provided a valuable experience in archaeology for 60 students.
