DiMv-61, Peg: This is a multicomponent campsite with several Avonlea components around 2 m depth. One of these, Level 18, yielded a date on bison rib fragments (S-2968). According to C.T. Shay, in addition to dating the site occupation, GSC-5842 also corresponds to a coarsening of the alluvial sequence, suggesting the occurrence of more frequent and higher magnitude flood events.
