    Kamloops home builder in legal battle after unearthing artifacts

    Greg Ferguson was in the midst of building his dream home when he received a call that derailed everything.

    Excavators digging into the ground uncovered remnants of First Nation artifacts.

    A representative from the archaeology branch of the B.C. government who was on the other end of the phone told Ferguson to stop excavating.

    . . .

    The government had been contacted by a Kamloops archaeologist who had previously discovered lithic scatter at the site. Lithic scatter are the remnants left behind when First Nations made stone tools.
