Household Archaeology at Bridge River, British Columbia: The Early Floors of Housepit 54

Excavation, analysis, and interpretation of a single dwelling with fifteen superimposed floors occupied from 300 A.D. over a period of 1,400 years in British Columbia and the preparation for publication of two books. (24 months)

The Bridge River Archaeological Project, a partnership of The University of Montana and the Bridge River Indian Band, will complete excavations of Housepit 54 at the Bridge River site in southern British Columbia. Housepit 54 is a deeply stratified housepit within a village of 80 such houses. This particular house offers the extraordinary opportunity to examine household history on an inter-generational basis spanning a period in which the greater village more than doubled in size, developed socio-economic inequality, suffered economic turmoil, and was eventually abandoned.
