FbMi-5 : an Archaic site in the Swan River Valley, Manitoba
Colwill, Virginia Louise
FbMi-5 is a single component prehistoric campsite located near the toe of a Campbell Beach Ridge in the Swan River Valley of Manitoba, Canada. Basal peat from above the cultural horizon has been carbon-14 dated at 380 + 130 B.C. (GSC #1380), providing an upper temporal limit for the occupation of the site. Projectile points found at the site are representative of an Archaic side-notched point tradition and bear affinities with those found at the Logan Creek, Simonsen, Turin, and Hill sites of Nebraska and Iowa, the Steeprock Lake site in Manitoba, and the Long Creek site in Saskatchewan.
