Hicks Site

About the Site:

Discovered in the box for another site, the Hicks artifacts in Sustainable Archaeology McMaster's collection represent a mystery. As with many legacy collections, only very limited provenience information is available about this site and its artifacts. This assemblage consists entirely of lithic tools and debitage, and appears to have been excavated by someone named Alex Hicks in the early 1970s.

Anyone with information about such an excavation is encouraged to contact Sustainable Archaeology McMaster.

At SA McMaster:

One box of lithic material. No associated records (yet….).
