DiMv-93, Crane: This multicomponent campsite spans the last 3000 years of occupation in the Souris valley, beginning with Pelican Lake components and extending to the Railway era. Preliminary findings include six dates on bone samples. Level 5 is the youngest dated component with late prehistoric material and one radiocarbon date (S-3215). Level 12, with no diagnostic artifacts, has a radiocarbon date (S-3214). Level 16 yielded Besant points and a radiocarbon date (S-3213). A slightly older age, without diagnostic artifacts, was found for Level 19 (S-3211). Level 26 contains a late Pelican Lake or early Besant component and produced a radiocarbon date (S-3212). The next level, Level 27, produced a Pelican Lake point and is much older, according to a date on a bison proximal radius fragment (S-2969).
