Abstract

Until recently sites with microblades were rarely found in Alberta, Canada; however, evidence of microblade production has now been observed in a number of archaeological sites excavated in the boreal forest in the northern portion of the province. This study examines the sequence of microblade production at Little Pond (HiOv-89), a prehistoric lithic workshop in northeastern Alberta, through technological analysis and artifact refitting. This paper argues that the microcores from Little Pond and other sites in northeastern Alberta may be considered a far southeastern extension of the Denali complex of the far northwest.
