Page Range:  1 – 3
Abstract:  This brief report will attempt to summarize the results of a three-day investigation of an aboriginal site on the Boyd property near Woodbridge. It is in no aspect a detailed or complete report, but presents a generalized statement of the work done by The Ontario Archaeological Society during May 18th, 19th, and 20th of this year. Since the area under consideration is soon to become a public park the urgency of the investigation made haste imperative. Fortunately the site is a small one and the task of salvage much simpler than it would have been on a larger one. Inclement weather made digging unpleasant, but enthusiasm can overcome even the wettest rainfall and a great quantity of artifactual evidence was recovered.

Abstract:  In Ontario, over a considerable period of time, there has appeared on excavated prehistoric sites and in collections of Indian artifacts, a minor quantity of pottery rims that are decorated with exterior extruded bosses or nodes. Such are present in the collections of the Royal Ontario Museum, in Brant House Museum at Burlington, excavated by Wintemberg at the Uren site, by Ridley at the Washburn Island site, by Ritchie at Sugar Island site and by Kidd at the Krieger site. Clarke found a fragment at a site in Algonquin Park and Ridley uncovered a rich stratum of these at Frank Bay on Lake Nipissing. Several years ago J. Pendergast informed this author of the presence of a bossed pottery site situated in the harbour of Kingston, Ontario. Lee, in his survey of southwestern Ontario, found and investigated numerous sites of bossed pottery, and has conducted a major excavation of two.
