Editors Notes/Notes du rédacteur
This issue of the journal includes the second instalment of Dyck’s retrospective on the early archaeology of the Plains. As noted in my earlier comments, the reason for including this section in the journal was to provide a forum for discussing the history of archaeology in Canada. Of necessity, such retrospective pieces highlight the contributions of former pillars of the archaeological community, many of whom have passed away. In fact, just last week, I received notices from several CAA members bringing to my attention the passing of yet another Canadian archaeologist, Boyd Wettlaufer, who died November 27, 2009 at the age of 95 years. Considered by many as the “father of Saskatchewan Archaeology”, he is perhaps best known for his work at sites such as Mortlach and Gull Lake in Saskatchewan and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta. Having made the announcement, a brief note such as this somehow fails to pay proper tribute to individuals such as Wettlaufer who have made Canadian archaeology what it is today.
