    Yes, the old forts are archealogical sites. There were 4 separate forts at
    Rocky Mountain House during the fur trade era; the one Thompson is at when
    he took the lunars that I gave was the first and it is very likely that
    this is the site of the true position that I gave (published with the
    archaelogical data) but there is also a possibility that Thompson's site
    was at a second site that is 1/2 mile closer to the mouth of the
    Clearwater River. Probably this "true position" was determined in the 60's
    or 70's.
