Year of Publication

A total of 27 archaeological and historic sites have been located and recorded on Colonel's Island (See Figure 4 and Table 1). Nineteen of these contained prehistoric aboriginal components; five were occupied both aboriginally and historically; and three contain only historic components.

It is unfortunate that adequate surface collections of diagnostic cultural materials could not be made.

On the basis of current data concerning extent, composition and location, the 27 sites found on Colonel's Island may be tentatively categorized as follows:
