Highlights from the collection

The Forks National Historic Site has a collection of over 190,000 recovered artifacts. The recoveries were almost exclusively made from two locations based on evidence that suggested they were likely where Fort Gibraltar I and II had once been situated. Parts of these areas are now occupied by the playground, and the north point interpretive node behind the Oodena Celebration Circle. The bulk of excavations at The Forks National Historic Site occurred in 1984 and 1989-93.
