2023 Olson Site Public Archaeology Days July 8, 9, 22 and 23

Pierson Wildlife Management Area, Melita, MB

In 2018, the discovery of a modified bison scapulae along a creek in Melita indicated evidence of Indigenous cultivation, as scapulae were used by Indigenous peoples as hoe blades.

In 2019 Brandon University (BU) and the Manitoba Archaeological Society (MAS) conducted an initial investigation of the site to determine if the site was intact, which it was.
