Fear & Loathing on the Alberta Plains…

My friend and fellow Project Past member Christopher Goodmaster has provided us with a photogallery of the 3 day roadtrip that followed the 2005 Plains Anthropological Conference held in Edmonton, Alberta. The trip organizers dubbed it “Fear & Loathing on the Alberta Plains” in honor of the late Hunter S. Thompson


“We were somewhere around Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, on the edge of the plains, when the archaeology began to take hold….

We had two GPS units, seventy-five projectile points, five sheets of graph paper, fortification ditches, circular depressions, cairns, and a whole galaxy of glyph panels: shield bearing warriors, human figures, elk, geometric shapes of all kinds and chronologies… Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, and more than a case of beer. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get into a serious archaeology addiction, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. “
