An Archeological Overview of Redwood National Park

Author(s): Michael J. Moratto

Year: 1973


Compiled here are data gathered during three seasons of fieldwork

(1971-1973) in and near Redwood National Park, California. In order to design a program for the preservation and interpretation of the cultural features in Redwood National Park, the National Park Service has sponsored detailed studies of the local history and archeology. The archeological study, based upon three seasons of library research and field reconnaissance, provided the data for this overview. The chapters dealing with linguistics and archeology (II, V and VI) endeavor to reconstruct the arrival and evolution of prehistoric cultures in the vicinity of Redwood National Park. Chapters III and IV deal with the ethnography and ethnohistory of the native peoples--Yurok, Tolowa and Chilula--of the Redwood National Park vicinity as they were known during the historic period. My objectives in Chapters VII and VIII are to describe the field reconnaissance of Redwood National Park and to inventory the various archeological features discovered. Chapter IX provides recommendations for preserving, managing and interpreting the archeological resources described.
