Zooarchaeological analysis of fine screened animal bone and ancient DNA analysis of Pacific salmon recovered from shell midden sites in the southern Strait of Georgia on the Pacific Northwest Coast provides detailed information on subsistence practice. Together with other kinds of material culture they also allow a consideration of patterns in land use that speak not only to issues of economy but also social interaction.
