Ceramics as Indicators of Economic Variation in the Red River Settlement
This thesis looks at economic variability among five historic sites in the Red River region: Upper and Lower Forts Garry, Riel House, Delorme House, and the Garden Site. Analysis assesses the visibility of economic variation in the archaeological record using both mean index values, and Kenyon and Kenyon's method, to examine the ceramic assemblages frm the selected sites using intersite and intrasite comparisons. These methods determine that economic variation is discernable at historical archaeological sites through the comparison of ceramic artifact assemblages.
