FeNm-86, East Village Access: This site was discovered during construction of an access road into East Village at Batoche National Historic Park. Although corner-notched projectile points reminscent of Pelican Lake forms were found on the surface, four radiocarbon dates on bone excavated from undisturbed contexts are much older than any known Pelican Lake component. One of the dates (S-2740) is nearly a millennium younger than the other three, and Nieuwhof suggests that a weighted average of the older three dates is the best estimate for the age of this site. He also notes that this age corresponds to the time span of the Mummy Cave series.
