History
A TRADE POINT, PROBABLY ORIGINATING FROM THE AMERICAN TRADERS ALONG THE UPPER MISSOURI RIVER. THE CUT-OUT SHEET IRON STYLE WAS COMMON ON THE MISSOURI RIVER. THE H.B. CO. PRODUCED FORGED POINTS IN CANADA, WHICH DIFFER SIGNIFICANTLY IN APPEARANCE TO THE U.S. STYLE BLADE. FOUND BY DONOR IIN HOME LOCATED IN LETHBRIDGE. THE HOME HAD SEVERAL PREVIOUS OWNERS, & DONOR DOES NOT KNOW HOW POINT CAME TO BE IN THE HOUSE OR ITS PROVENANCE. IN 2009, UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE PLAINS ARCHAEOLOGY STUDENT FALLON MAHAR SURVEYED THE GALT'S POINT AND STONE TOOL COLLECTION AND, USING A TEMPLATE DEVELOPED IN COORDINATION WITH PROF. BUBEL AND REFERENCE BOOK "ALBERTA IN STONE", PROVIDED FEEDBACK ON THE GALT'S COLLECTION. CONCEQUENTLY, MAHAR QUESTIONED THE RECORD'S ORIGINAL 1830 - 1875 DATE, PROPOSING IT MAY BE AS EARLY AS THE 1600'S (POST EUROPEAN CONTACT).
