Archaeological Monitoring of the New Parking Lot at The Forks
Monitoring of backhoe excavations for construction did not yield any heritage objects, but did enable the recording of buried soil horizons, indicating periods of soil formation between flood episodes. Correlation with previously recorded profiles indicates zones of potential impact for future developments in the area.
Archaeological Monitoring of the Northbound Main Street Bridge Construction Project
Monitoring of mechanized excavation on the banks of the Assiniboine River uncovered a total of 447 artifacts, dating between 1911-1960s (clustering around the late 1940s). Artifacts categories include: architectural objects; science; medicine; communication; clothing; recreation; transportation; housewares; floral and faunal remains; glass and ceramic storage, cooking, and ornamental containers; metal, plastic, glass and ceramic dinnerware. Stratigraphy and artifacts indicate bank-rebuilding after 1940, and a flood prone south bank. Many artifacts were from restaurants and automotive repair facilities, and where possible, bottles and dinnerware are identified by manufacturer. Stratigraphy is discussed in detail. Appendices include an artifact catalogue.

Archaeological Monitoring of the Stage I Construction Program
A total of 10,969 artifacts were recovered during monitoring of Stage I construction in the East Yard at The Forks site. Postcontact recoveries represent the following: architectural objects; lighting equipment; scientific artifacts; medicine; communication; food processing; clothing; transportation; recreation; housewares; containers; detritus; and floral and faunal remains.

Archaeological Monitoring of the Steam Plant Redevelopment
Auger drilling of pile holes to support new additions yielded two Precontact artifacts that could not be assigned to any specific cultural occupation. They are faunal remains (bison) and could not be associated with either human hunting activity or natural deposition. Stratigraphy is discussed, and appendices include an artifact catalogue.

Archaeological Monitoring of the York Avenue Underpass Reconstruction Project
Monitoring of mechanized excavation yielded Precontact artifacts (60) representing the periphery of encampments previously identified (correlated with a horizon that has been radiocarbon dated to 580±70 years ago) from the following categories: ceramic, lithic, and faunal remains. Industrial Period (1870-1888) and Railway (1888-1988) artifacts (146) were also recovered from the following categories: architectural objects; lighting and manufacturing equipment; clothing; housewares; faunal remains; ceramic and glass storage and ornamental containers; and dinnerware.
