Soil Analysis at the Robitaille Site: Part I: Determining the Perimeter of the Village
Author: HEIDENREICH, C. E., & S. NAVRATIL
Page Range: 25 – 32
Abstract: The work reported in this paper concludes that phase of the Robitaille soil investigations that deal with the delimitation of the village site. Most of the field and laboratory procedures as well as hypotheses and preliminary findings were published previously (Hurley and Heidenreich, 1969 and 1971). This report should therefore be regarded primarily as a conclusion to previous work rather than as a complete summary of the project.
Soil Analysis at the Robitaille Site: Part II: A Method Useful in Determining the Location of Longhouse Patterns

Abstract: As work proceeded on the delimitation of the village site through soil chemical analysis, the authors became increasingly aware that although the P, Mg and pH readings were consistently high within the village area, there were marked differences in chemical concentrations over fairly short distances. The problem we set ourselves was to discover whether the spatial variation in chemical anomalies had any pattern that might be ascribed to the cultural behaviour of the people occupying the site. In fact, we formulated a hypothesis that the highest readings in pH, P and Mg should be found in the middens and the central areas of the former longhouses.
