Abstract:
The remains of fishtraps at Collins Creek, Pewet Island the the Nass were subject to a programme of monitoring survey during the period 2003-2007. Periodic visits to these sites recorded previously unknown parts of their structures and have contributed to the improved understanding of their nature and function. The results of the monitoring survey are presented, their remains compared to fishtrap sites found and recorded elsewhere since the publication of the initial 1990s work at Collins Creek, and consideration given to the potential for non-archaeological data to contribute to the study of these monuments. The effect of coastal change within the estuary, resulting in the episodic exposure and erosion of these sites is also discussed. While the last decade has seen a dramatic increase in the number of investigations in the intertidal zone, and consequently more fishtraps have been located around the British and Irish coasts, the Blackwater Estuary traps remain nationally important examples of this type of monument in terms of their survival, date, scale and group value.
