The Archaeology of Saskatchewan Waterways
Preserve Our Archaeological Heritage
A variety of archaeological and historic sites can be found along Saskatchewan waterways. These include early Indian campsites and rock paintings and European fur-trading posts. Such heritage sites are valuable and fragile parts of the environment and are therefore protected by law. You are welcome at these historic sites but you must leave them untouched, for future generations to enjoy. In order to protect our heritage resources for scientific and public use, the people of Saskatchewan have the benefit of The Heritage Property Act. Under it, collecting artifacts from, or otherwise disturbing archaeological or historic properties are offenses. To report the discovery of a heritage site or to gain further information, contact:
Archaeological Resource Management Program
When you report a discovery, you may also learn more about the history of your find.
