The search for pre-clovis in the ice-free corridor: archaeological geophysics at Wally’s Beach
Wally’s Beach is an important archaeological/paleontological locality in southern Alberta where pre-Clovis dates have been reported from butchered faunal remains, but associated cultural materials are poorly known. Significant challenges exist for research at the site, including poor access, limited stratigraphy, and the extreme size of the site (>2km2). Ground-penetrating radar and drone imagery were conducted to identify higher-potential areas, which discovered a possible paleochannel. This discovery aids future research efforts at Wally’s Beach to better understand the earliest human occupation of the ice-free corridor.
