The Bodo Archaeological Centre and Site is located 3 hours east of Edmonton and 15 minutes south of Provost on Hwy 899. See an exciting line-up of summer adventures and programs for all ages including daily-guided tours of the site and center. Programs offer hands-on experience excavating a well-preserved bison bone bed, which represents a bison hunting culture that dominated the grasslands for over 10,000 years. Thousands of artifacts including bison bone, pottery, stone tools, and arrowheads have been discovered at this site. Amateur archaeologists can relax after a day in the field and enjoy locally grown bison meat and fresh saskatoon berries before settling into your tipi under the stars for the night.
