Archaeological investigations of the National Historic Sites Service, 1962-1966: R61-2/1-1E-PDF

"The first article is a broad survey intended to introduce the program of historical archaeology carried out by the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development since 1962. John H. Rick, formerly Senior Archaeologist in the National Historic Sites Service and now Chief of the Service's Research Division, covers the results of our excavations at various sites across the country and discusses some of the problems encountered. The second article on glass trade beads by Kenneth E. and Martha Ann Kidd presents a new classification system and nomenclature which, it is hoped, will be of benefit to archaeologists who are working with these materials. The system is designed for use in the field, requires no costly nor expensive equipment, and, in addition, is expansible to include any new bead types which may be found in future work in sites in northeastern North America.The final article in this issue is a brief summary of the history of the Roma settlement on Brudenell Point, Prince Edward Island, by Mrs. Margaret Coleman"--Foreword, p. [8].
