Bodo Archaeological Centre


Located 35 km south of Provost, in east-central Alberta is one of Alberta’s largest and well-preserved archaeological sites. This site was inhabited during the past 5000 years by Aboriginal peoples who both hunted and camped in this unique area of stabilized sand dunes, where the grasslands meet the parklands of Alberta.

Artifacts buried in the sand, including bison bones, stone hunting and butchering tools, clay pottery, and arrowheads, have provided a unique glimpse into a culture of hunting and living off the land that predominated the grasslands of Alberta for over 10,000 years.
