NbVk-1: An Historic Fishing Camp in Old Crow Flats, Northern Yukon Territory 
Front Cover

  A museum-published study about NbVk-1 a fishing camp in the northern Yukon used c1930 including details of artifacts found. "NbVk-1 is not a significant site by any means, but it provides an indication of the nature of hunting and trapping activities which characterized the Vunta Kutchin utilization of Old Crow Flats during the summer season. The site yielded evidence of exclusively historic (ca. 1930) occupation, and the evidence includes the remains of a fish trap, a muskrat hunting canoe, and an occupation area which probably was covered by a canvas tent. The artifacts consist almost entirely of Euro-Canadian trade goods, but two of them provide our first evidence of influences reaching northern Yukon from the gold rush activities to the south. Along with the nearly contemporaneous 1933 occupation of the Cadzow Lake Site (MjVi-1), NbVk-1 enlarges to our understanding of the ecological significance of historic trapping activities as they pertain to muskrat population fluctuations."
