Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses wetland archaeology in Canada. It first summarizes the intellectual and sociopolitical context that affects where and how Canadian archaeologists conduct research, and then describes the human use of wetlands in antiquity, covering settlements, resource procurement locations, and transportation sites. Next, the chapter presents examples that illustrate how wetland archaeology in Canada has been integrated into research. The examples reflect different regions, ages, and site types. They include research addressing the antiquity of technologies and cultural activities, cultural attribution of archaeological remains, and adaptation to the natural environment.
