AdHc-1, Boyd Lakefront: This is a multicomponent site with two Early Woodland pits and a Late Woodland (Glen Meyer) campsite. Cooper and Savage (1994: 12) list different taxa from those in Fox (1983b). The former may be focused on the Glen Meyer component, with 308 specimens recovered from a 2 sq m test pit, and the latter may report a Meadowood fauna. In any case, both warm-weather and year-round species are present, and the exposed shoreline location would seem to favour the warm season.
