So what does the archaeological record say?

As some of you may know that the Huronia Museum in Midland is planning to rebuild the replicated Huron/Wendat village that was partially lost in a fire in May of 2007. The question has arisen as to the what type of palisade was most common on the village sites in classic Huronia.
Were they single row, double, triple or more.
The historical record would seem to indicate that the triple palisade was the most common but what does the archaeology say - what do the village footprints reveal and was there a change over time. If you can help clarify with references to archaeology in classic Huronia please comment.
