Lockport (EaLf-1)


Campsite, fishing site, and village located just below the Pelican Rapids (Lockport Dam) on the Red River, downstream (north) from the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The occupation extends back 3000 years, but the agricultural component dates to the past 500 years or so. The site was excavated between 1984 and 1988 and is well known for its evidence of both intensive fishing and horticulture (Flynn 2001).
