Abstract:

Systematic random sampling disclosed six prehistoric components, the first data prior to 4800 BP, with little evidence of Native American use after about 400 B.P. Throughout its use, the site appears to have functioned primarily as a base camp for hunting deer, antelope and mountain sheep. Site is located on a narrow terrace at the foot of a steep slope on the right bank of Rufus Woods Lake Columbia River 110 mi. upstream from River Mile 568. Author
