Problematic Pixels: Prehistoric Residential Floor Recognition in the Pend Oreille Valley
Author(s): 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., LiDAR) and targeted use of additional methods, can site search failures be reduced and site discovery increase? If systematically applied upon a landscape scale, can such an approach improve needed efficiencies for both commercial and research oriented archaeology? The Kalispel Tribe shares its results of multi-modal search efforts for residential encampments and related phenomena on and adjacent to its reservation.
