Archaeological sites are areas where there is material evidence of past human occupation or human activity. Sites include aboriginal camps, villages, earthworks, burial mounds and cemeteries, as well as the ruins of frontier forts, trading posts and other material remains of early Euro-American settlement. High concentrations of soil phosphates may suggest previous habitation areas, but usually it is the by-product of stone tool manufacture, pottery sherds and fire-cracked rock that indicates the location of prehistoric camps and villages. Historic Euro-American sites are located by means of historic records and the remains of historic structures and artifacts.
