1 - 2 weeks availability
Over the past two decades, the oil sands region of northeastern Alberta has been the site of unprecedented levels of development. Alberta's Lower Athabasca Basin tells a fascinating story of how a catastrophic ice age flood left behind a unique landscape, one that made deposits of bitumen available for surface mining. Less well known is the discovery that this flood also produced an environment that supported perhaps the most intensive use of boreal forest resources by prehistoric Native people yet recognized in Canada. Touching on various elements of this rich environmental and archaeological record, this collection offers new insights into human and natural history.
For more than twenty years, Brian M. Ronaghan has served in a research and regulatory compliance role with the Government of Alberta. He currently directs a team responsible for overseeing archaeological studies in Alberta.
