Fabrics from Upper Fort Garry: Unusual Archaeological Evidence

This thesis compares the economic value of fur-trade era textiles from Upper Fort Garry (DlLg-21) recovered from two privies (outhouses), of which at least one dates to the military occupation of the Sixth Regiment of Foot (1844-48), to contemporaneous materials from York Factory. A sample of 436 textile pieces (20%) was chosen from a large sample of 2,181 items, one of the largest samples recovered in Canada of a rarely surviving artifact category. Results found the privies to be similar in terms of economic value, fibre type and textile structure, to each other and the York Factory sample.

Status and the fur trade in the Northern Department, 1821 to 1870. In Status, Structure and Stratification; Current Archaeological Reconstructions, 407-411

The theme of this paper is to determine the relationship between social position (status) and material culture during the fur trade, specifically 1821 – 1870. The groups used for this study are: The Hudson’s Bay Company’s Northern Department, with their “quasi-militaristic” hierarchy; the peoples in the region living outside the Company (religious, agricultural); and impermanent groups (The Sixth Regiment). There is a small chart with sample records of meat distribution for a couple of social classes.
