Gitai Yahel In Situ Measurement of Benthic Community Trophic Dynamics at Race Rocks by Gitai Yahel,
Darcy Mathews The configuration of the rocks in several stone mounds at Race Rocks are suggestive of First Nations use of this area for Burial Mounds in the period AD 500. Investigation into sites on the lower part of Vancouver Island by Darcy Mathews, a graduate student of the University of Victoria, have shown that over 400 such sites exist on the nearby Rocky Point area.
