Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Mary Ann Tisdale reviews the previous work conducted at the Stott Site by R.D. Bird and R.S. MacNeish. These two researchers thought the site was a bison kill and village site with a nearby burial mound. Further excavations were conducted between 1975 and 1977 by Brandon University Archaeological Field Schools and the University of Winnipeg. They found the '[c]ultural deposits … to be spatially localized and discontinuous… [with] temporal discontinuities as well.' (page 3). All of these excavations have demonstrated the Stott Site is larger than 100 acres. Artifacts at the site include ceramics, bifaces, other lithic tools and detritus, and bone tools. The ceramics are analyzed and separated into modes as a way of classifying or typing the ceramics. The 1977 season excavation work is described and soil profiles are provided. Plates of some of the artifacts can be found in the appendix. The more recent excavations prove the site consists of '…a series of occupations, non-contemporaneous with the mound…' (page 100). The majority of the material from the site relates one Blackduck occupation around 800 A.D. and a second around 1200 A.D.
