MetadataShow full item record
This thesis examines the faunal remains recovered from an archaeological site, Upper Fort Garry (DILg-21), located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Excavations recovered two privy/refuse pits, located within the Hudson's Bay Company post. Over five thousand animal bones were recovered and analyzed. The objectives of this analysis were threefold: to reconstruct the pattern of animal utilization during the occupation of Upper Fort Garry, to compare this reconstruction with historical and archaeological records of aninal use in the Red River Settlement, and to examine the relationship between diet and economic position.
