Remote Sensing at 45PO435, the South Flying Goose Site

Author(s): John T Dorwin

Year: 2017


In the summer of 2014, during the course of National Register evaluation of 45PO435, a site on the Kalispel Indian Reservation along the Pend Oreille River in the mountains of eastern Washington, an isolated small burned structure was located by means of magnetometry and ground penetrating radar. Its existence was confirmed by means of soil augering. Its dimensions were delineated by a combination of augering, excavation and electrical resistance. This paper discusses the contributions made by each of these techniques to create a stronger picture of the whole. Functionality, ethnobotany and geoarchaeology of the structure were explored by Molly Carney.
