Recognizing that archaeological data can offer valuable contributions to bioregional study in a given area, this report sets out to provide an archaeological master plan to aid in identifying, interpreting, and preserving the prehistoric archaeological resources in the vicinity of Haliburton.

A general overview of the evolution of prehistoric cultures in Ontario is followed by specific focus on those cultures believed to be in Haliburton County. The report looks at possible threats to heritage sites through development and water levels in the Trent-Severn Waterway as well as the need for heritage legislation in making decisions affecting heritage resources.
