Full Description

RCAHMS Canmore description:
During two short field seasons (October 2008, April 2009) a coastal survey was undertaken to identify new shell middens and coastal sites, and samples were taken on several shell middens for radiocarbon dating. The survey and sampling focused on three main areas:
The second area was along the mainland coast of Glenelg, where five rock shelters containing shell middens were recorded. These were mostly in the area around NG 776 157. Samples were taken from two sites. The deposits in the other caves were inaccessible due to rockfall. <1>
