The purpose of the research at Montague Harbour is to increase our understanding of the spatial distribution of the various culture types with respect to fluctuating sea levels in the Strait of Georgia region; and to demonstrate the value of using micropalaeontological techniques in marine archaeological site analysis.

Hopefully these techniques will continue to be useful at the Montague Harbour site and prove to be advantageous in future archeological studies.
