An understanding of site function at a Middle Dorset Palaeo-Eskimo site known as Phillip's Garden (EeBi-1), has long been impeded by the quantity, complexity and overlap of the archaeological remains. As greater site complexity has been realized, it has become apparent that establishing contemporaneity amongst the archaeological features is crucial to understanding site function and settlement patterning. Potential contemporaneity is estimated from radiocarbon results, and is used as the basis from which to compare locational data; changes in house construction, and the frequency and distribution of artefacts. This analysis is intended as a means to evaluate the nature and duration of the various forms of occupation which have created this semi-sedentary looking archaeological site.
