Excavated at "The Forks" in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada...
("The Forks" is a historic site in downtown Winnipeg, located at the confluence of the Red & Assiniboine Rivers. It has been a meeting place for Aboriginal peoples, European fur traders, Metis buffalo hunters and immigrant settlers. Upper Fort Garry (a Hudson's Bay Company trading post) was established in 1822 near The Forks. Between 1881-1884, the majority of the fort was demolished to straighten Main Street.)
