Remnants of Woodland Iroquois village found

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An archaeological dig along southern Ontario’s Fischer-Hallman Road has unearthed traces of a Late Woodland Iroquois village dated to between roughly 1300 and 1600.

Researchers originally expected to find just a few artifacts. As of last week, however, they’d excavated more than 35,000 objects, including rare carbonized pieces of beans and corn, cooking ceramics, animal bones, and stone tools, reports Luke Schulz for Kitchener Today.

Wood PLC—the engineering and environmental consulting company leading archaeological assessment of the site—has also identified 25 structural features and 20 longhouse post molds. Barbara Slim, lead archaeologist on the dig, tells CBC News’ Liny Lamberink that these features include items like hearths, which provide crucial evidence of human activity.
