Recent excavations of the Davidson site in southwest Ontario exposed most of three small, apparently family-sized, house structures as well as a part of a fourth example. These structures include two different forms of pit houses as well as a circular surface house outlined by a wall trench, all well-dated to within a small period of time between 3200 and 2800 BP. Evidence including gradiometer surveys strongly suggests that there may be over 150 other such structures at the site, which would be unprecedented for a site of this age. Details of the construction of these structures are provided and their implications for seasonal use of the site are discussed. The several different forms of houses may be indicative of shifting seasonal use of the same location over time and may even indicate multi-season occupation suggesting a greater degree of settlement stability in the Terminal Archaic of Ontario than previously suspected.
