Archaeology is a fascinating way to discover the human stories hidden under the soils and across the landscape of southern Alberta.
Archaeologists uncover 11,000 year-old bison bones by digging several metres under the prairie grasses. They excavate depressions that turn out to be garbage dumps and privies to learn about people who lived in a coal mining town in the Crowsnest Pass.
Dart points found with ancient animal bones uncovered by erosion, family belongings unearthed in the remains of an historic ranch building, and surveys compiled of human and animal figures carving into stone help us understand those who lived here before our time.
