FaNq-56, Norby: Four excavation areas are separated by narrow impediments such as laneways, and together they span an area about 12 m long. Most of the points are large side-notched forms typical of the early side-notched (Mummy Cave) series, but one is a reworked stemmed point of possible Palaeoindian affinity. The site is a single component bison kill with three radiocarbon dates that can be averaged and a fourth much older date obtained during Leyden's study of southern Saskatchewan bison palaeoecology.
