Pottery found

By on November 1, 2002

Pottery dating from 1250 to 1750 AD was discovered under the floor of historic St. Peter?s Dynevor church on the east bank of the Red River in Selkirk, Man., in the diocese of Rupert?s Land. Archeologist Virginia Petch said the find is significant because it pre-dates European settlement. The fabric-impressed vessels discovered are called Selkirk pottery and are associated with the formative period of Cree culture. Ms. Petch said this suggests early Algonkian habitation of the land.
