Prehistoric and Historic Settlement in the Pine Creek Drainage, North-Central Oregon
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Located between the Great Basin and the Columbia Plateau region, north-central Oregon is a region of cultural and geographic boundaries. Full coverage pedestrian survey was conducted in the eastern Pine Creek drainage basin to record prehistoric and historic sites in order to understand how past people used, and lived on, the landscape. Several sites and isolates were recorded that span a period from the Late Archaic (3000 BP) to the mid-20th century, although settlement of the area likely occurred much earlier. Documented sites include locations for harvesting biscuitroot (Lomatium cous) and for quarrying chert.
