Coal Creek, EhPp-1: Vickers notes that this is one of the few winter tipi ring sites yet discovered. The site includes three buried tipi rings and several other features. Hearths were found inside the rings and also outside, and fire broken rock was found within the hearths and in nearby piles. The winter season is suggested by the topographic situation, the high concentration (75%) of artifacts within the rings, and the presence of fetal bison bone. Most of the lithic materials (90%) are of local origin.
