Department of Anthropology and Sociology The University of British Columbia Vancouver 8, Canada Date 2Q April 1974 ABSTRACT The Glenrose Cannery Site, DgRr 6, is a deep, multi-component located in the Fraser-Delta Region of British Columbia. This paper presents the analysis of the faunal remains recovered by excavation from the site during the 1972 and 1973 summer field seasons. Faunal analysis has had little place in archaeological site reports of the Northwest Coast and has certainly been underestimated as a source of information on subsistence and subsistence-related activities. The faunal remains from the Glenrose Site were analysed using different methods including determination of minimum number of individuals, live weight, and amounts of usable meat. Seasonality of occupation was determined and environ mental and cultural reconstructions were attempted with with particular regard to subsistence and subsistence-related activities. Changes in subsistence activities were discerned for the three major occupations represented in the site. The problems in faunal analysis were discussed. More work must be done with faunal remains in order that maximum amounts of information can be obtained to relate to other analyses of a site's excavated materials.

INTRODUCTION This paper presents the analysis of the faunal remains recovered at the Glenrose Cannery Site (DgRr 6 in the Borden site designation scheme), located in the Fraser-Delta region of British Columbia (see Figure 1). It is hoped that the results will yield information which, in compunction with other studies of excavated materials from Glenrose can aid in cultural and environ mental reconstruction. Faunal analysis has had little place in archaeological site reports of the Northwest Coast except for incidental species lists or bone counts and frequencies (e.g., Carlson 1960; Mitchell 1971). Recently, however, there has been increasing interest in more systematic analyses of faunal remains. Of particular interest is the re search carried out on the St. Mungo Cannery Site, DgRr 2, approximately % mile down river from the Glenrose Cannery Site, and of close cultural affiliation in some of the layers (Boehm 1973; Matson 1973). In our area, the importance of faunal remains has certainly been underestimated as a source of information on subsistence and subsistence-related activities, al though there have been some major contributions to the field. Flannery (1967) and Wheat (1972) have each 2 Figure 1» Map of the Fraser-Delta and Gulf Islands showing the Glenrose Cannery Site, DgRr 6a 3 produced substantial works centered around faunal re mains, extracting from their studies information re garding hunting patterns, seasonality of occupation, climatic trends, and even social organization. Of cource, these sorts of information are obtainable with out or with very little faunal analysis, as, for instance, through artifact or settlement pattern studies. However, with particular regard to subsistence or subsistence-related activities, artifacts alone allow archaeologists to test hypotheses concerning prehistoric activities with a very low level of confidence in the absence of reliable ethnographic documentation (Casteel 1971). While expounding the contributions that faunal re mains may make, many archaeologists have pointed out the problems most often encountered which might lessen the accuracy of the analysis. Much has been written recently about "distortion" or a "false picture" pre sented by faunal remains, caused by differential de position and by natural and cultural influences (Casteel 1971; Daly 1969; Lyon 1970; Payne 1972a, 1972b; Thomas 1971; White 1953). A natural factor influencing deposi tion and representation might be the acidity or salinity of the soil which would facilitate or hinder the deterior ation of bone elements. Also it is the case that some 4 bone elements of animals are more resistant to deterior ation than others because of their composition and form. For instance, the large long bones of the elk are more resistant to deterioration than the smaller rib bones; the bones of a large dog will probably have better pre servation than those of a small rodent. Cultural factors influencing deposition are more varied and less predict able, and, therefore, more difficult to control in the analysis of faunal remains. When a hunting party brings back a kill to the site, it may be in partial form, as when a large animal is butchered away from the settle ment and portions are consumed before the hunters return to the site (Perkins and Daly 1968). There may be under-representation of certain animals by bone elements. It« is possible that animals used as a subsistence resource might have no representative elements at a site because they are butchered elsewhere. Some animals may not have been used for food for one reason or another, but have representative elements present in a site. There is, then, a distortion inherent in the data collected and the archaeologist must be aware of this. With this awareness, faunal remains are a valuable source of information to archaeologists. 5 In this study I have tried to anticipate possible distortions from cultural and/or natural factors. I will present an analysis of minimum number of individuals of each species identified from the site, live weight and usable meat information, discuss vertical and horizontal distributions of the faunal remains within the site, and attempt cultural and environmental reconstructions. I have analysed the remains using different techniques — weight and frequency calculations, minimum number of individuals, live weight, and usable meat — to see if there is a difference in the results which might suggest different views about subsistence and subsistence-related activities. It is also hoped that this study will lead to a greater understanding of the complex nature of the maritime and riverine cultural adaptations of prehistoric populations on the Northwest Coast. The primary concern, however, lies in the analysis of the faunal remains and the explication of the methods and results. II. METHODS OF RECOVERY, RECORDING, AND ANALYSIS Site Description, Recovery, and Recording Methods The Glenrose Cannery Site, DgRr 6, lies on the south bank of the south arm of the Fraser River opposite Annacis Island (Figure 1). Ethnographically, the Glenrose Site 6 lies within the territory of the Kwantlen group of the Halkomelem speaking Coast Salish Indians (cf. Boehm 1973: 18; Duff 1952: 23). The Coast Salish culture is characterized by complex maritime and riverine adapt ation with reliance on hunting and gathering as well, and an equally complex subsistence technology for har vesting and preparing the variety of resources available to them. A pattern of annual travels to seasonally available resources characterized many of the Coast Salish tribes with a few exceptions of sedentary settle ments (Mitchell 1971: 49-50). There is no place name from the Salish for the Glenrose Site, and although there has been extensive ethnographic work done for the Coast Salish (Duff 1952; Barnett 1955; Suttles 1951), the site itself has no references in the literature. In the summer field seasons of 1972 and 1973, excavation units of 2m square were excavated in 10cm arbitrary levels except when recognized features and/or living floors were encountered (Figure 2). The levels in all of the pits were recorded from a single site datum. That is, if the surface of a pit measured 2.6m below the site datum, then the number of the level was 26, and the level extended 10cm downward 7 to level 27 (2.70m below the site datum). In principle, in an area of even terrain, level 25, for example, would designate the same 10cm interval in each of the excava tion units. During both summer field seasons, faunal remains were recorded in three ways: 1. If there was a particularly interesting concentration of bone, or if articulated bones were uncovered, they were designated "Faunal Remains" and were given a specific number beginning with "F", such as F-001, and were recorded on a special "Faunal Remains Record Sheet". Three dimensional provenience information was recorded and any other pertinent information (matrix, associated artifacts, etc.). The form from the 1972 excavations differed slightly from the 1973 form; both are shown in Appendix 1. 2. When a complete bone or almost complete isolated bones were encountered, they were recorded on an "Artifact Record Sheet," which only required three dimen sional and matrix information where faunal remains were concerned. 3. All other fragments of bone were saved by level in bags, thus, preserving a single dimension of provenience. In addition, all the soil within a level was sifted through 1/4" or 1/8" mesh screens, and any bone fragments recovered were also saved in the level bags. Dry-screen ing and water-screening were both employed in the course of the two seasons. 8 Figure 2. Plan map of DgRr 6, showing the excavation grid and excavation units0 9 During the 1973 field season, field checks were made on the kinds of material which might fall through the 1/8" screens and still be retained in a 1/16" screen. Quantities of 4000cm3 (20cm X 20cm X 10cm blocks; 1% of the volume of a level which was 2m X 2m X .10m) of material from different levels and different pits were sifted through an 1/8" screen which was attached to a 1/16" screen. The 1/16" screen retained traces of shell and bone, but they were finely fragmented, and the bones in particular were too fragmented in most cases for visual separation of the bird bone from the mammal or fish bone. Laboratory Analysis The 1972 and 1973 bone level bags were analysed by others (Mayer n.d.; Harris n.d.) and specific results will be presented later in this paper. Basically, the methods they used were to separate the bones by general faunal classes — fish, land mammal, sea mammal, bird — and to develop relative frequencies by pit and level of the classes based on weight and bone counts. These remains were, for the most part, quite fragmentary and could not be identified to species. For this paper, over 350 fragments were sorted to the level of species or genus. These fragments came 10 from the level bags, separate bags when treated as arti facts, or were individually packed faunal remains (F-001, F-002, etc.). Level bags often contained fragments of bones which could be identified to species. All the level bags from pits 1-6, 8, and the baulk were inspected for identifiable bones. An intuitive decision was made as to which bones could be identified. I accomplished the bulk of identification myself and having no previous instruction, I often had to guess which bones were worth taking out of the level bags to try to identify. All bones were also identified by element where possible and weighed and counted. The piece by piece identification was accomplished with the use of the comparative collection at the University of British Columbia's Osteology Museum and the collection at the British Columbia Provincial Museum. In addition, I was able to use identified faunal remains from the Archaeology Lab at U.B.C, and fortunate to have the use of Gay Boehm's identified remains from the St. Mungo Site. I was not able to identify all the bones I had taken from the level bags; often key epiphyses were missing or the bone fragment was too small to show any distinctive characteristics. 11 III. PRESENTATION OF THE DATA Component and Stratigraphic Divisions Resultant from Associated Analyses The Glenrose Cannery Site is a deep, multi-component midden site with deposits of up to 6 meters (cf. Matson 1973). The site's stratigraphy represents three major occupations. The Marpole Component (Component I) is the most recent and uppermost occupation consisting generally of a dark sandy loam with some intermixture of shell ending in a tan silty clay loam layer. The component is so named because of Marpole affinites indicated by the presence of ground slate knives, slate disc beads, and celts. The St. Mungo Component (Component II) consists of shell lenses in places and apparent lenses of sterile, redeposited soil. This component bears great similarity to the oldest component from the St, Mungo Cannery Site, DgRr 2, down river from Glenrose (Boehm 1970, 1973). There are similarities in the presence of decorative objects, such as bone pendants and tooth pendants, a spindle-shaped incised bone object, and general similar ities in other artifact classes. The Old Cordilleran Component (Component III) in most cases is totally void of shell and is characterized, particularly in the 12 bottom half, by the presence of well-rounded cobbles and boulders. This component is characteristically similar to what is outlined as the Old Cordilleran Culture with the presence of leaf-shaped bifaces and an abundance of crude pebble tools (cf. Matson 1973). Table I outlines the radiocarbon dates received up to the time of this writing. These divisions have resulted primarily from artifact analysis and, at this point, are still under going further minor revisions. It is also important to mention that the stratigraphic divisions are de fined by an interval of levels for each pit. That is, in pit 1, the levels 37-59 represent the extent of Component II. In pit 5, Component II is represented by levels 34-56. The complete list of divisions for each of the pits appears in Table II. 13 TABLE I. Radiocarbon Dates From The Glenrose Site, DgRr 6.

Subject to revision anytime after March 18, 1974. 15 Minimum Number of Individuals Grayson (1973) has recently discussed the various approaches to grouping of faunal material for deter mining minimum number of individuals of animals from an archaeological site. Others have also discussed the concept of minimum number of individuals (Shotwell 1955; White 1953; Payne 1972a; Daly 1969);, but Grayson neatly summarizes the merits and drawbacks of the approaches. Although it is generally agreed that the minimum number of individuals should be calculated to account for all of the skeletal elements of a particular species in a site, the methods by which determinations of minimum number of individuals varies. One method discussed by Grayson is to determine the MNI (minimum number of individuals) by ignoring the stratigraphic breaks and the vertical excavation units. This would yfeld the most conservative estimation of MNI. In terms of the multi-component Glenrose Site, the MNI derived from the faunal remains with this method would be meaningless. One could not expect any inform ation on change in subsistence over the thousands of years of occupation, nor any information on the cultural or natural enviroment that one could infer from the presence or absence of certain species through the 16 occupations represented by the stratigraphic divisions. A second method of obtaining the MNI, which Grayson considers the best, is by working within the stratigraphic divisions and ignoring the vertical excavation units. This would yield more MNI than the previous method out lined. In my analysis, I have followed closely a third method which Grayson discusses. The method entails the use of the stratigraphic divisions and also the vertical excavation units. In using such a method one assumes that the remains of individual animals will not be distributed across the site and represented in several of the vertical units. I first divided all the faunal material on the basis of the stratigraphic divisions, then on the basis of the excavation units (pits). Within the stratigraphic divisions, the MNI were based on real and intuitive clusters of remains. If, for example, there were in a certain level of a pit, left and right humerus fragments found within centimeters of each other, they were considered to constitute a real and observable cluster, as would the ar ticulated remains of a radius and ulna. If, on the other hand, a humerus of a deer was found in one level and an ulna found in the next level and they were in different quandrants of the pit as well, these might be intuitively clustered together 17 and considered as one individual rather than two. It was all the more difficult to assess the MNI because the excavation by arbitrary levels precluded the determin ation of natural substrata and lenses of cultural material within the major stratigraphic divisions and often cut through two or more of these layers. I was unable to determine whether remains found in different areas of a pit and at different depths were in one substratum/lens or another, and, hence, representing one or two individuals. Thus, I would say that my estimate of MNI for Glenrose is rather conservative since I proceeded cautiously and minimized groupings rather than vice versa (For a complete catalogue of the faunal remains from which all calculations were made, see Appendix 2). Table III outlines the faunal remains found at Glenrose. There is the initial division by species (family or sub family when species undeterminable), then by cultural com ponent. The total number of fragments within each component is indicated and the skeletal parts present are listed. The calculated MNI is also indicated. In some cases a precise count was not taken due to the extreme fragmentation of some of the remains, however, regardless of the fragmentation, all the remains were weighed. It should be mentioned here 18 that lumbar vertebrae of dolphin (genus Grampus; verification of genus by personal communication with T. Loy) were recovered at Glenrose. They were extensively modified and recorded as artifacts. Since there was no other evidence for the presence of dolphin at the site, they were not considered for my faunal analysis. The bone artifacts were also inspected and there was no evidence to suggest that species of fauna other than those already identified were represented in the site. From the table, it is often the case that the MNI calculated is considerably less than the number of individual fragments for each species. Although the number of individual fragments are presented they are not used elsewhere in the paper. One could compare the counts to obtain an idea of change through time. The changes certainly appear to be greater, in terms of decrease from component to component, but are often quite deceptive and of very little use. An increase in the bone count could be due to increased fragmentation of skeletal elements and certainly is the case'.'.for much of the Glenrose remains. Increasing counts do not neces sarily mean increasing animals.

Faunal remains from Glenrose by species and cultural component with minimum number of individuals. X. = present, exact 2i , The greatest bulk of the fauna in terms of MNI, is in the middle component, II, with Component I having the next largest number. Figure 3b presents the site total for MNI. Although a comprehensive list of minimum number of individuals from Glenrose has been presented, the num bers should not be taken as directly comparable to the minimum number of individuals from other sites without caution because of the different approaches to deter mining them. This, however, does not make the inferences made from the MNI information any less valuable. Relative Frequencies by Bone Weight and Minimum Number of Individuals The relative frequency of species was graphed by bone weight and minimum number of individuals for com parison within each component and for comparison between the components within the site. Figure 4a presents the relative frequencies of species within a single component by percentage of the total bone weight in each component. Figure 4b presents the relative frequencies of MNI by percentage of total MNI within each component. There can be direct comparison of Component I from 4a with Component I from 4b, or Component II of 4a with Component II of 4b, and so on. Figure 4a.

Percent of each species within each component based on minimum number of individual figures* 25 However, there can be no valid comparisons made between Components I, II, and III because percentages were based on weight and MNI totals of each component. That is, the percentage of elk in Component III of Figure 4a was calculated by taking the total bone weight of elk in that component and dividing by the total bone weight of all species in Component III. The same procedure was followed for all species and components and for the MNI figures. As one can readily see, the ratios given by the percentages of bone weight are quite different than those given by the percentages of MNI. An interpreted dominance of elk in Component III of Figure 4a is not the case when looking at Figure 4b. In Figure 4b, deer, beaver, and elk could be interpreted as being equally dominant in representation. Figure 5a and 5b also present the relative fre quencies by the components, but the percentages were based on the site totals 6f> bone weights and MNI for all species, so that the percentage of elk in Component III in Figure 5a is obtained by calculating the total weight of all species in the entire site. Thus, for each figure (5a,5b) Components I, II, and III are com parable with each other. In addition, the right most graph of both figures show the relative frequencies of each species within the entire site. SPECIES 10 30 ELK DEER BEAR CANIS ?

Percent of each species within each component and the site based on minimum number of individual figures. ro 28 It is again apparent that the ratios for the bone weights are quite different than those for the MNI. Weight of species1 fragments then, gives a false picture of resource utilisation. For example, in Figure 5a, elk seems to dominate the species represented, but it is not necessarily the case according to Figure 5b. Individual elk bones will weigh more than individual bones of smaller•mammals. One elk humerus may weigh the equivalent of five or six humeri of seal, yet will only represent one individual to perhaps more than five of the other species. Thus, caution should be exercised when making inferences based on relative frequencies based on bone weight. Live Weight and Calculated Amounts of Usable Meat This section deals with the live weight of species found at Glenrose and the amount of usable meat which could conceivably be taken from them for human consumption. The live weights were calculated on the basis of the MNI information presented earlier in this paper. The weights of all the species were taken from The Mammals of British  Columbia (Cowan and Guiguet 1965), or found in T.E. White's article on calculating the dietary percentage of food animals utilised by aboriginal people (1953). I have also used White's figures for the percent of usable meat 29 extractable from different animals. For the most part, my figures for the live weights were conservative, taking the average rather than the maximum weight. I also converted the calculations into grams to be consistent with previously presented data and to be compatible with associated analysis of bone from the level bags. Grams rather than ounces or pounds were used to record all the other data from the site. The weights should not be taken as being absolutely correct for the species involved; they are only estimates. Also, it is assumed that the species involved have not changed greatly in size in the past thousands of years, so that weights given for today's animals are applicable to the prehistoric fauna. Table IV contains the live weights and grams of usable meat for species found at the Glenrose Site. Table V presents the calculated grams of usable meat for each of the species within the components. Figures 6 (a-d) presents the same data graphically. The graphs of the usable meat for the different components show more general similarity to the graphs of weight of bones than to the minimum number of individual graphs. This is because a large animal will usually yield more usable meat as well as have larger and hea\aer bones 30 TABLE IV.

One particular exception where the usable meat representation differs substantially a from the bone weight frequencies is in Component II for deer and seal. In Figure 5a the bone weight of seal is almost half that of the represented frequency for deer, yet in Figure 6b, in terms of usable meat, seal yields more than deer. Therefore, although bone weight frequencies may yield similar information to the usable meat frequencies, the latter seems more desirable in probably giving a more accurate picture of the relationships between species. The calculations for minimum number of individuals is a necessary step in order to obtain frequencies of usable meat. Additional Data During the course of the 1973 summer excavations, two slumps of cultural material occurred due to excess moisture in the ground. The first slump was from the east wall of the baulk (Figure 2), and the second occurred in the pits 1-5 baulk complex. Because of the very in definite provenience, the faunal material saved from these two slumps were not included in our analysis. However, a basic list of species present are included as Appendix 4. There were no species identified that we did not already encounter. 32 TABLE V. Grams of Usable Meat by Component with Site Totals (Glenrose, DgRr 6). Species III II I i Site Elk Deer Bear Canis ?

U) 37 Determination of Age of Individuals The aging of individuals was only attempted when the proximal and/or distal epiphyses of bones were present. The partial deterioration of many of the bones or the presence of only fragmented sections made it all the more difficult for aging individuals. Three categories for aging (when possible) were used — juvenile, young adult, and adult. The criteria on which the aging was based were as follows: 1. juvenile — epiphyses unfused, present or missing; 2. young adult— epiphyses partly fused and present or broken off; 3. adult — epiphyses completely fused and present, although deterioration had occurred at the very ends of many of the bones. The ages of individuals are indicated and presented as part of Appendix 2. Associated Faunal Remains Analyses C.E. Mayer (n.d.) and M. Harris (n.d.) both analysed the contents of the bone level bags from the Glenrose excavations. Mayer's analysis dealt with pit 1-6 from the 1972 summer excavations, where pits 1,4,5, and 6 were partially dug. Harris' analysis dealt with all the level 38 bags from pit 6, which was completed in the summer of 1973, and all the bags from the baulk between pits 1 and 5. The categories they used were "fish", "land mammal", "bird", and "sea mammal". The presentation of the data was in terms of weight in grams and percents based on the weights for the different categories. I consolidated some of Mayer's figures and categories (land mammal, sea mammal, bird) and arrived at the following: Pits 1-6: I — 2463.0g./30.4% II — 5160.1g./60.7% III — 475.5g./ 5.9% Fish remains occurred throughout the deposits in varying quantities. It is apparent that the bulk of the faunal remains occurs in the middle component, II. There is indicated a fairly sharp rise in the remains from the lowest com ponent to the middle component, then a drop in the amount of faunal remains, though not as sharply, into the latest component. Harris noted a change in the resource emphasis (on the basis of changes in amounts from level bags) from fish in the lowest component to mammal and bird 39 in the middle and upper components. There is an increase in total faunal remains from the lowest component in pit 6 and the baulk to the middle component. In the baulk, there is a continuing increase up to the latest component where the faunal remains decrease. However, in pit 6, the increase continues through the middle component into the upper component. The results of both analyses are generally com patible with the results obtained in this study. From Figures 5a, 5b, and Appendix 3, it is evident that the greatest number of identified faunal remains by weight and minimum number of individuals occur in Component II. There is a marked increase from Component III and a decrease to Component I. The fish remains from Glenrose were analysed by R.W. Casteel (n.d.) of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Washington in Seattle. He studied materials from column samples from the west walls of pits 1 and 4 and also from hand-sorted remains from the level bags of pit 1 from the 1972 excavations. Notable in the remains identified were spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias), sturgeon (Acipenseridae), pacific herring (Clupea harengus pallasii), salmon 40 (Oncorhynchus, spp., 0_. tshawytscha, 0_. gorbuscha, 0. nerka), and eulachon (Thaleichthys pacificus). The weights (in grams) of the fish from the identified remains were estimated using formulae developed by Casteel himself. Sturgeon and salmon occur consistently in the remains from each of the samples, with salmon constituting from 65 to 95 percent of the total identified of each sample. In addition, from the analysis of pit 1 level bags, salmon remains (Oncorhychus spp., et al) occur, without exception, in every level from 34 to 64 inclusive. Seasonality of Occupation From the faunal remains examined and dealt with in this paper, seasons of occupation were determinable only for the major components in general. That is, because of Glenrose's complex stratigraphy and the lack of knowledge regarding the interlayering and interlensing of cultural material within the components, it was not possible to determine a season or seasons of occupation represented by each layer or lens encountered. Another difficulty was that there were relatively few species identified which could be considered legitimate indicators of seasons. 41 In Component III, there were no bird species identified although the presence of some fowl were in dicated in the results of the level bag analyses of Mayer and Harris. Birds are often fairly reliable seasonal indicators because of their migrating cycles. There were present in Component III, however, the small and large land mammals and seal. The presence of immature individuals has been set forth by Clark (1952: 25-27) as criterion for assuming summer occupation. Boehm (1973: 84) has also used this criterion for an indication of summer occupation. There fore, some statements of seasonality can be made for Com ponent III although there are no bird species identified. In Component III, there were juvenile deer and elk indicating summer occupation. (In this study immature individuals were classed as juveniles, based on missing and/or unfused epiphyses of bones.) There was also the presence of salmon vertebra in the lower levels in dicating summer and probably fall occupation, for major salmon runs occur in the Fraser River during the summer and fall. In Component II there was greater specie's diversity, and greater amounts of faunal remains recovered by weight and calculated number of individuals. Salmon 42 bones were present throughout the component indicating a summer/fall occupation. Also present are juvenile deer, elk, seal, and beaver indicating again summer occupation. Seals were probably caught ascending the Fraser River to reside in Harrison Lake (Cowan and Guiguet 1965: 353). A common loon was identified from this component; the loon summers and winters in this area. A western grebe and bald eagle were also identified. The grebe is common along the coastlines in the winter, spring, and fall, and the eagle winters in this area. Thus, summer and fall occupations are indicated by the fauna for Component II, with summer, fall, and winter occupations probable. The swans were not identified to species, but if two species, Cygnus buccinator and Cygnus Columbianus, were present at Glenrose as they were at the St. Mungo Site, then there is additional evidence for winter occupation, for the two species winter in this area. Component I is much like Component III, having no positive avian seasonal indicators, just juvenile deer and seal. Geese, ducks, and mergansers were present, but not identified to species. Salmon remains were also present throughout the deposits of this component. Summer 43 and fall occupation is indicated by the data. There is a possibility of winter occupation indicated by the presence of geese (Canada geese and black brant both winter in this area and both were found in the deposits at St. Mungo). Summer and fall occupation for the three components is most positively indicated by the fish remains and the presence of juvenile animals. The additional winter occupation is less positively indicated, but possible. A lack of any positive indicators for winter or spring occupation, however, does not preclude the pos sibility of such occupation in any or all of the three components, nor do any of the previous statements pre clude the possibility of year round or single season occupation at any time during the occupational history of the site. • Ethnographieally it is known that most large game hunting was done in the summer and fall because of the quality and quantity of meat on the animals, but that hunting was also done when necessary, i.e., also sporadically during the winter (Duff 1952; Suttles 1951; Barnett 1955). 44 Environmental and Cultural Reconstruction The Glenrose Site lies at the base of a high ridge, Panorama Ridge, consisting of glacial till and fluvio-glacial deposits (Johnston 1921). During the occupation at Glenrose represented by Component III, the site lay very near or directly on the salt water. Within the past eight thousand years or so, the delta of the Fraser River has built up so that the site now lies approximately 13 to 14 miles from the present mouth of the river (Johnston 1923; Mathews and Shepard 1962) . Presently there is a large bog directly down river from the Glenrose Site which is also at the base of Panorama Ridge. There are also remnants of bogs and bog vegetation still observable up river from Glenrose also on the south bank near the Patullo Bridge which currently spans the river at New Westminster. Two types of bog fores associations were observed: pine (Pinus  contorta), and birch (Betula sp.) associations; and red cedar (Thuja plicata) and hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) associations, with birch interspersed, and infrequent spruce (Picea sitchensis) present. Other areas near the site are forested by various conifers and stands of deciduous trees: Thuja plicata, 45 Abies, sp., Pseudotsuga menziesii, Picea sitchensis, Tsuga sp., Populus trichocarpa, Betula sp., Alnus sp., and Acer sp. An inspection of the site's present vegetation was made by Jim Pojar, Ph.D. candidate, U.B.C, and a list was made for the site. The list is presented as Table VI, with introduced and naturalized species omitted. Organic (charcoal) samples were collected during the 1973 summer excavations, and some selected samples were sent to the Forest Products Laboratory at U.B.C. The results are shown in Table VII. Douglas fir is present throughout the occupation of the site with hem lock and maple associations in the lower component. The birch, oak, and spruce occur in the upper levels of the upper component in recently disturbed earth. The habitats for the land mammals identified from Glenrose are outlined in Table VIII. Looking at all three tables, VI, VII, VIII, the general picture of the area is one that corresponds to the suggested natural climax vegetation for the area — dense coniferous forests in the higher regions, with deciduous/coniferous forests in the lower areas (Cowman and Guiguet 1965). This statement is also made on the assumption that the current vegetation of the site and the surrounding areas 46 TABLE VI. Vegetation Species Cannery Site, DgRr Presently on the Glenrose 6.

It is quite difficult even to begin to discuss population size (and diet) or settlement patterns from the faunal and environmental data, not necessarily because of the lack of an adequate sample, or the factors of differential deposition and preservation, but simply because of the lack of knowledge regarding the complex interlayering and interlensing of the cultural material. What layers from which pits were contiguous with layers from other pits? What were the relationships between the layers and lenses within one pit? Pit profiles do-not necessarily reflect the situation in the middle of a pit. Thus, the relationships between the faunal remains are no less obscured for their direct relationship to the layers and lenses of the pits from which they came are virtually unknown. In this study, I have not dealt with fish nor shell remains from Glenrose which are quite important in the diet of the inhabitants. In a study that deals only with a portion of all the materials obtained through excavations one should not expect definitive statements regarding cultural activities, but rather, •suggestive statements based on the data present which can be correlated with associated analyses. 50 TABLE VIII.

The increase from Component III could be due to increased peopulation size requiring increased resource utilisation, increased technological sophistication which increases accessibi lity, or increased availability of resources due to changing climatic conditions and/or physical geography of the area. More than likely it was a combination of all of the above with one or more factors being dominant at one time or another influencing the observed dis tributions. The factor or factors which dominate might also change through time within a component as they change from component to component. Referring to the amounts of usable meat (Figures 6a-6d), it appears that there is quite a marked increase in elk, deer, and seal from III to II. From the level bag analyses the figures for fish remains also show a cor responding increase from III to II. I would suggest that besides a population increase at the site, the occupation became more intensive, perhaps year round rather than sporadic or seasonal. 52 The presence of large mammals could be indicative of a certain level of technological sophistication or o cultural development. Group hunting could be inferred; several hunters could more efficiently trap the larger game. Ethnographically, it is known that deer and elk were hunted by parties driving them into nets (Duff 1952; Suttles 1951; Barnett 1955), with elk requiring more hunters because of their greater size. The subsequent decrease of fauna and usable meat from Component II to I was perhaps due in large part to the build-up of the delta, increasing the distance to the shellfish, making the site desirable not for year round occupation, but seasonal encampment to take ad vantage of the availability and accessibility of the large land game and fish runskduring the spawning seasons. There is also much less elk by individuals in Component I than deer, whereas, there is a comparable amount of elk to deer in Components II and III. There was either less need for the resource the elk might provide or reduction in availability and/or accessibility of the elk. It could, however, simply be due to a lack in adequate sample size for Component I coupled with the fact that Component I was subject to the most dis turbance . 53 In terms of the entire occupation of the site it seems that a comparable number of smaller mammals and birds were taken to the number of large land mammals and seals (Figure 3b). However, with regard to the usuable meat gained by the human population, elk, deer and seal yielded considerably more food, with bear yielding a sizeable amount when caught. Some of the smaller animals might not have been considered food for one reason or another, e.g./ dogs (Canis?). That there might have been differential occupation areas over the site through time is reflected in the distribution of faunal remains in each pit (Figure 7, Table IX). The differential depths of cultural material in the different pits also indicates a pattern of site usage. The area surrounding pits 1, 4, 5, 6, and the baulk seems to have been the most intensively used area of the site. The pit 1-4-5-6-baulk area was the centre of the site1s activities or much more towards the centre than pits 2, 3, and 8. Pits 2, 3, and 8 were shallower, and also yielded considerably less faunal remains by weight of bone and minimum number of individuals. Figure 7.

CONCLUDING STATEMENTS AND COMPARISONS There is a tremendous amount of information to be gained about the prehistoric populations on the North west Coast from faunal analysis. The study of sub sistence and subsistence-related activities cannot be complete without including the faunal remains which are the remnants of these activities. Faunal remains are present in virtually all archaeological sites in the area, especially coastal middens, yet they are also virtually ignored. Compari sons with many of the ;sites' faunal remains is im possible because information regarding them is not pre sent in the site reports. Still there is some information that can be used in comparison. The effectives of faunal analysis are heightened by comparisons with associated analyses of artifacts, burials, soils, etc., from any given site. Gressman's work at the Dalles, Oregon (1960), un covered an Old Cordilleran component at approximately the same time depth as Glenrose's Old Cordilleran Compo nent. Cressman defines this as his Early Period of cultural development and further divides it into the Initial, Fully Developed, and Final. During the Initial there is some bone material beginning to appear in the 57 upper levels. The Fully Developed Period is characteriz ed byan "enormous number of salmon vertebrae, bird bones, animal bones" (Cressman 1960: 59). Bird, animal and fish remains disappear in the Final. Thus Cressman concludes that "the subsistence economy of the Early period was certainly based on the use of fish with some slight addition of small animals with an occasional deer, elk, or bear thrown in" (I960: 70). A similar situation seems to have existed at Glenrose in terms of the subsistence with reliance on fish, some large and small game, and the addition of shellfish. In comparing Cressman's faunal material to the Glenrose material for the Old Cordilleran Component, I would suggest that, generally, the occupation at Glenrose was of a much more sporadic or seasonal nature than at the Dalles. There seems to have been much more rapid cultural development at the Dalles. Of course, Glenrose at one time lay on salt water so a stable environment for resource development might not have existed during the site's initial occupation. The shifting channels of the Fraser would have affected the accessibility of the fish during their seasonal runs. These factors would have lessened the desirability of the area for a more permanent encampment. 58 Carlson's study on the San Juan Islands (1960) has some information on faunal remains and is of interest because his study discusses Marpole components and the later San Juan Phase components. Fish remains were common in all strata from the different sites he mentions. The mammalian remains were presented by frequency of bone count for the sites. It is difficult to compare his figures with those of Glenrose because there is very little discussion regarding the remains and subsistence activities. However, from the counts presented in his study, deer remains are most numerous with dog or wolf next in representation. Elk and seal were represented to a lesser degree. This situation also occurs in the Marpole Component from Glenrose, where deer is predomin ant over elk, and seal remains are absent. Cultural development ends with the Marpole Component at Glenrose, but continues in the San Juan Islands with a change in technology as evidenced by changing artifactual elements. Another comparison that can be made is with the recent work done by Kathryn Conover at Namu (1972). She found evidence for seasonal, multi-site occupation in response to the pursuit of seasonally available resources. She was able to define three depositional morphologies. 59 The earliest occupation occurred over 9000 years ago and occupation continued until about 480 years B.P. The figures she presented for the majtimal species were in terms of number of identified bones per level or stratum for the excavation units at Namu. A hypothesis she presents regarding subsistence is that when there is a decline in the availability of a resource, the population exploits a different resource rather than exploit the diminishing resource in another area (Conover 1972: 281). She observed a consistent trend of gradual increase in predominance of marine fauna over forest fauna at Namu. This situation perhaps was precipitated by a decrease in availability of forest fauna or simple pre ferential resource utilisation due to more highly de veloped maritime proficiencies. At Glenrose, with particular respect to the Marpole Component, the exploitation of different resources might not have been enough to compensate for a diminishing resource, shellfish, so that seasonal occupation was pre ferred over year round occupation. Although Conover's study focuses on a population with a different subsistence orientation, she makes in teresting remarks regarding site occupation and resource utilisation. 60 A final study which is the most relevant to the Glenrose Site was done recently by Gay Boehm (1973), on the St. Mungo Cannery Site, DgRr 2, which I have briefly mentioned earlier. The St. Mungo Component of the Glenrose Site is named after the St. Mungo Site and is comparable to its lowest component. Her study also discusses the seasonality of occup ation of the site determined by the use of seasonal faunal indicators and also on the basis of changing amounts and types of fauna (Boehm 1973). Besides being able to discern changes of patterns from component to component she was also able to discern internal vari ation within the components. There is much greater avian species diversity at St. Mungo than at Glenrose, mostly in the lowest com ponent at St. Mungo. In Component II at Glenrose there are 6 species of birds present, whereas, Boehm lists more than 2 5 for the comparable component at St. Mungo. Having seen her actual faunal collection I would suggest the discrepancies between the sites' avian remains is due, in large part, to better preservation of the identifiable elements at St. Mungo, for there was quite a number of bird bone fragments in the level bags for all the pits at Glenrose none of which were identifiable to species. 61 The variety of mammalian fauna is similar. At both sites deer, elk, Canis?, beaver, and seal are well represented. At both sites elk generally pre vailed as an important resource yielding more usable meat per individual than other animals. Boehm notes changes in subsistence patterns within the lowest component at St. Mungo and has defined two sub-components, la and lb. The general picture pre sented for sub-component la is of hunting,.fowling and fishing activities, with hunting predominant. From decreases in diversification of avian species in sub component lb and increases in salmon, which is most efficiently exploited seasonally, Boehm saw an inten sification of the seasonal nature of subsistence acti vities at St. Mungo (n.d.: 21). Although definitive subsistence patterns cannot be drawn for the Glenrose site at this time, some general patterns can be discerned for the three components. These statements are made with full knowledge of the limitations of the data and are by no means final. Subsistence activities at Glenrose indicated by the faunal remains of Component III are og generalized hunting and gathering with no one particular resource exploited in great quantities, however, the large land mammals were probably the most desirable resource in 62 terms of usable meat. Fishing and fowling were also accomplished. The presence of seals does not necessarily imply incipient maritime adaptation, for they could have been netted and clubbed as they stopped on their way up the Fraser River to reside and breed in Harrison and Pitt Lakes. A sporadic seasonal occupation is indicated in Component III, so that the inhabitants of Glenrose probably did not exploit seasonally available resources systematically and did not employ a technology to store great quantities of food for very lengthly occupations. I would suggest that the nature of the occupation re presented by Component III was similar in adaptation to available resources as at The Dalles (Cressman 1960), but that the socio-economic considerations influencing length and intensity of occupation were quite different. Component II, as mentioned before, is markedly dif ferent in types and quantities of faunal remains. More intensive and regular seasonal occupation is indicated, with corresponding development of technology to systematically exploit the seasonal resources available and to store them in quantity for later use. There is increased emphasis on large land and sea mammal hunting. Again, the presence and increase of seal does not neces sarily indicate maritime adaptation or the need for such 63 pursuits, for there is a corresponding increase in the fish and shellfish remains. Certainly longer periods of continuous (multi-season) occupation are indicated. The general subsistence pattern is quite similar to that of Component I at St. Mungo (Boehm n.d.). of hunting, fowling, fishing, and shell collecting activities with probably intensification of the seasonal nature of the activities. This is supported in part by the increase in fish remains in Component II (Mayer n.d.; Harris n.d.). The data for Component I shows a decrease in almost all faunal remains, notably elk. There is an absence of seal altogether and fewer avian species as well. The component has been defined as Marpole-like by Matson (1973) on the basis of similar artifact types. Marpole culture has been defined as representative of the North west Coast Cultural Tradition of highly adapted maritime subsistence activities (Borden 1970). There is the pre sence of unilaterally and bilaterally barbed harpoon tips and ground slate points, which are implements re lating directly to maritime oriented activities and usually found in sites of the Marpole Phase (Borden 1970: 99-107). Borden also mentions that several sites of the Marpole Phase once fronted the salt water and are now land locked (1970: 102-103). The Glenrose Site was not fronting the sea during the occupation represented by 64 Component I. There is no evidence from my analysis of the faunal remains to indicate a maritime oriented cul ture from Component I at Glenrose. However, I have found indications for occupation at Glenrose to procure seasonally available resources, perhaps primarily fish, thus, the decrease in representation of large land mammals, especially elk is reasonably accounted for. I would sug gest that at this time Glenrose was an inland seasonal encampment for a maritime oriented population, thus, the presence of some implements relating to maritime pursuits and the absence of marine fauna is not an unexplainable situation. Seal, great amount of shellfish, and other marine fauna were probably,taken at a site on the coast at other times of the year. In summary, from the earliest occupation at Glenrose there seems to be a change in the nature of occupation from sporadically seasonal to fairly continuous and in tensive occupation to perhaps annually seasonal. The subsistence patterns show a change from fairly random procurement of anything available at any given time, to intensive and fairly continuous systematic procurement to systematic seasonal procurement. Although the evidence suggests that the inhabitants of Glenrose were not at any point particularly maritime oriented, maritime activities 65 may have been carried on at other locations. The popul ation involved could have moved annually from the coast to inland sites in pursuit of seasonally available resources. There are problems in faunal analysis and many of these are encountered in the analysis of the remains from the Glenrose Site. There were problems in sampling and the unavoidable problems due to the constraints of time, money, and lack of knowledge about faunal remains and their relationships to other materials in the site. More faunal analysis must be done in order to understand subsistence and subsistence-related activities, and to produce suitable techniques and approaches in research design-to obtain the maximum amount of information from all excavated material from an archaeological site. Inter-site comparisons should be made very cautiously until the intra-site variations are more fully studies and understood. 66 REFERENCES Barnett, H.G. 1955 The Coast Salish of British Columbia.
