Faunal analysis of assemblage collected during 2012 data recovery excavation.

Assessing Testing Programs and Strategies for Section 106 Determinations of Eligibility: U.S. Army Yakima Training Center, WA. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John Davis. Steven Hackenberger.

The U.S. Army Yakima Training Center (YTC) contains over 1,300 archaeological sites. Thirty years of inventory and archaeological testing have produced a significant body of archaeological reports and databases. Two university programs, several CRM firms, and now the Wanapum Band and Yakama Nation are working with the U.S. Army, studying and protecting the unique natural and cultural landscapes of the Yakima Uplands within the YTC. Synthesis of this work for the purpose of archaeological...

Faunal Analysis for Two Columbia River House Feature Sites: Hole-in-the-Wall-Canyon (45KT12) and French Rapids (45KT13) (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew Johnson.

As part of ongoing thesis work, a taxonomic and taphonomic faunal analysis was completed for the zooarchaeological collections (n≈4000) of two house feature sites, Hole-in-the-Wall Canyon (45KT12) and French Rapids (45KT13). Both sites are located near Vantage, Washington, within the inundated area of the Wanapum Reservoir, and date ca. 2400-200 B.P. Originally excavated as part of large scale archaeological salvage work prior to dam construction in the summers of 1961-62, the fauna was never...

Lithics and the Late Prehistoric: Changing Adaptive Strategies on the Southeastern Columbia Plateau (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kathryn Harris.

How do people adapt to the changing natural and social environment of the late prehistoric (3,000 B.P. to historic), Columbia Plateau? By interacting and learning from one another, and by adapting their technology. Though frequently characterized as a homogenous culture area over the past 3,000 years, previous analyses show differences in artifact form, assemblage composition and household features. This project traces these changes through the stone tools of the archaeological record. Research...

Problematic Pixels: Prehistoric Residential Floor Recognition in the Pend Oreille Valley (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kevin Lyons.

Public archaeology, as constructed in the United States, is heavily invested in the efficient use of tax and rate payer moneys to identify archaeological sites. The form of that investment, typically, results in a well certified and experienced archaeological practitioner walking the land and/or systematically probing soils. Although well established, this approach is not without its conspicuous errors and project crushing missteps. With the recent proliferation of remote sensing datasets (e.g.,...

Radiocarbon Chronology of the Western Stemmed Tradition on the Columbia Plateau (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Danny Gilmour. Thomas Brown. Paul Solimano. Kenneth Ames.

The Western Stemmed Tradition (WST) is an early cultural phase on the Columbia Plateau of Western North America. Much of the seminal work establishing the timeframe of WST is now decades old and suffers from imprecise dating. In this poster, we review previously compiled data, update stratigraphic interpretations, and model existing radiocarbon assays within a Bayesian framework. Preliminary results indicate that WST on the Columbia Plateau is at least coeval with Clovis and spanned at least...
