    Abstract:
    The boreal forest is a vast region. Therefore, the archaeological record, like anywhere else in the globe, is subject to revision as additional evidence is gathered. By conducting research in the same location over a long period of time, Hyslop was able to alter the methodological approach that he utilized while surveying the shorelines of Lac Seul. His new approach revealed that cultural material existed well into the forested interior away from the water’s edge within the Lac Seul basin in central Canada. This development requires a detailed discussion of the nature of the boreal forest, the manner in which these discoveries were made, and the possible implications for the geographical region. It is important to recognize that this discussion is concerned with the surveying techniques utilized, and not with the excavation techniques.
