STEVENSON, Marc G. Window on the Past: Archaeological Assessment of the Peace Point Site Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta. (Ottawa): Parks Canada, 1986. Pp. [1]-145,(3). Illustrated with photos and sketches. 8vo, card covers. "Recent archaeological assessment of the Peace Point site, in Wood Buffalo National Park, which lies across the border between Alberta and the Northwest Territories, has uncovered an uncommon and productive archaeologicalresource that offers an unparalleled opportunity to illuminate not only th e past cultural dynamics of the region, but also the northern hunter-gatherer way of life in general. This report presents the results of investigations carried out at Peace Point and in the vicinity during 1980 and 1981. Thesignificance of the Peace Point site is seen to derive primarily from the site's deeply stratified cultural deposits and their high degree of structural integrity and resolution. In recognition of this unique set of circumstances, this report explores the potential of the site to enable the researcher to formulate a cultural chronology, to clarify how similar sites are formed and to explicate social behaviour from the material remains of past northern hunter-gatherers. In so doing, the archaeological significance of the site is believed to have been accurately identified." -from the rear cover. Very minor wear to edges of spine, else vg. 25.00
