The Viking Burial Site (FgOw-2):  A Collaborative Undertaking to Excavate and Reinter an Historic Burial in Central Alberta





The recent excavation and re-interment of an historic burial in the Viking area was a collaborative undertaking involving the Historic Resources Management Branch of Alberta Culture and Tourism, representatives from the Confederacy of Treaty 6 First Nations and Treaty 7 Management Corporation, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the RCMP, and landowners Brian and Dolores Rozmahel.

This presentation will provide details about this cooperative project and how throughout the excavation and reburial process, guidance on cultural protocol and ceremonies was sought from representative Elders and Treaty organizations. We will also outline the results of the excavation and provide interpretations arising from analysis of the skeletal remains and associated cultural material, all in an attempt to place the burial within an historic context.
