Abstract

The Pacific Northwest has a long history of human occupation, including evidence of pre-Clovis cultures dated to 13,800 RYBP on Haida Gwaii, British Columbia. I will survey the literature on early human settlement in the region and then participate in an archaeological field school led by Oregon State University at Cooper's Ferry, Idaho, in summer 2015. Research continues in areas that have produced Western Stemmed assemblages dated to 11,370 and 11,410 RYBP. I will ask how new digital methods of replication and recordation help us understand when and how humans arrived in North America, as well as how they thrived.
