EeRl-7, Keatley Creek: This largest remaining pithouse village in the region includes 119 house depressions ranging 5-21 m in diameter. Of 24 housepits test-excavated, almost all of the large and medium-size ones were first occupied during the Shuswap horizon (3500-2400 BP), continued to be used during the Plateau horizon (2400-1200 BP), and were abandoned at the beginning of the Kamloops horizon (1200-200 BP). Lepofsky, et al. (1996) report faunal remains from a small (HP 12), medium-sized (HP 3) and large (HP 7) housepit. HP 3 and HP 7 yielded radiocarbon dates of ca. 1100 BP, and HP 12 "appears to have been occupied a few hundred years earlier" (Lepofsky, et al. 1996:36). Dates are not given in this report, but were supplied in an unpublished manuscript (Hayden, 1995). A larger series of dates is supplied by Prentiss et al. (2003).
