The primary component of this prehistoric site is early Late Archaic, Halifax. The assemblage consisted largely of lithic reduction debris and few formal tools. Analysis of the material, including limited refitting, documents a series of rather brief, generalized occupation episodes. Procurement and reduction of locally available lithic material was a common activity, probably conducted incidentally to other activities.
