This thesis discusses the 1989 excavation and analysis of a Late Archaic Broadpoint component. the Adder Orchard Site (AgHk-16), located in the County of Lambton, Ontario. The excavation centred around two surface debitage concentrations that were approximately 40 metres apart. Grids A (93 m 2) and B (22 rna) revealed a total of 27 features with varying amounts of cultural material. The purpose of the 1989 project was to define site limits. and to locate features to provide more data pertaining to site function, seasonality, chronological sequence, lithic procurement and reduction strategies. and sUbsistence practices of the Broadpoint people.
