1. Cole, Erika. The Cory site (FaNq-75) and the Mummy Cave/Oxbow transition on the Northern Plains.

Degree: 2015, University of Saskatchewan

The Cory site (FaNq-75) is a multicomponent Middle Period site located in Saskatoon in south-central Saskatchewan, Canada. The site was excavated in 2001 by Stantec Consulting Ltd. as part of a remediation program for a SaskWater pipeline project. Four occupation levels were identified with one complete and two fragmentary projectile points identified. Level II of the Cory site contained a complete projectile point, which was an atypical Gowen point, and was radiocarbon dated to 5910 ± 60 rcybp. The collection from the site was obtained from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum for a more thorough analysis as part of this thesis. Three new radiocarbon dates were obtained for previously undated levels of the site. In addition to the description of the Cory site, this thesis also reviews the published material from a number of Middle Period sites on the Northern Plains. This review led to a reconsideration of the traditional classification of Middle Period archaeological cultures. Previously, the Gowen complex and the Oxbow complex had been considered separate, but related entities. In this thesis, a new classification is proposed with the Gowen complex and the Oxbow complex combined into a single archaeological culture. Advisors/Committee Members: Walker, Ernie, Kennedy, Margaret, Lieverse, Angela, Urquhart, Stephen.

2. Pletz, Jody Raelene. Archaeological investigations at the Dog Child Site (FbNp-24) : an evaluation of Mummy Cave subsistence patterns.

Degree: 2010, University of Saskatchewan

The Dog Child site is a multi-component archaeological site located within Wanuskewin Heritage Park, approximately three kilometres from the City of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The site was excavated from 2004 to 2009 during the summer field season with help from the University of Saskatchewan Department of Archaeology and Anthropology field school and the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society field school. A Master of Arts thesis dealing with the first three years of excavation entitled The Dog Child Site (FbNp-24): A 5500 Year Multicomponent Site on the Northern Plains was completed by Cyr (2006). A focus on the 2007 to 2009 field seasons has been undertaken in this thesis. Artifacts including projectile points and pottery recovered from the site as well as radiocarbon dates confirm the presence of six occupation levels. Five different projectile point series or complexes are associated with the six occupation levels including: Plains Side-Notched, Prairie Side-Notched, McKean series, Oxbow complex, and Mummy Cave series (Gowen). The Mummy Cave series at the site encompasses two of the occupation levels identified. Due to the rich Gowen cultural level at the site the opportunity to study this cultural occupation in more detail became the focus of the second research program. The Hypsithermal is a period of increased complexity and debate on the Plains. This thesis focuses on the 7500 to 4500 years B.P. time frame during which Mummy Cave series cultural occupations are present. The archaeological remains recovered from the Gowen occupation at the Dog Child site suggest the utilization of a broader subsistence base rather than a sole focus on utilizing and consuming bison. Comparison of other sites from this time period indicates that the Dog Child site may be unique in the number of specimens and taxa represented by the excavated faunal assemblage. From this analysis a wealth of new archaeological data including insight into Hypsithermal subsistence patterns and paleoenvironmental studies can be observed. Advisors/Committee Members: Walker, Ernest, Robertson, Elizabeth, Kennedy, Margaret, Renaut, Robin.
