    Update on site issues: (1. replies now need a title *and* something in the message box, 2. certain links are causing strange pop-ups on Apple devices, and 3. Some folks can't type anything into the text box.) Basically, a series of unfortunate events set us back on testing. We'll get to it as soon as we can, and hopefully things can get fixed by this weekend if not before.  More info: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/site-problems-more-info/

    Kamloops home builder in legal battle after unearthing artifacts

    First Nation artifacts that were 7,000 years old were unearthed at Greg Ferguson’s property in Westsyde

    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.
