Abstract:  The purpose of this report is to present the evidence from an archaeological excavation of the historic Longlac trading post site, carried out in 1964. The report describes the site and the artifacts, and summarizes the archaeological field work. Since the artifacts relate apparently to three traditions at the site, they are of inestimable importance, and since it was not easy to arrange those of European origin, a functional classification was made, following closely that used in the River Basin Surveys. (Woolworth and Wood, 1960).
