Description: The topic of tonight's talk involves the archaeology of Oregon and specifically what you might see when you are rafting or enjoying the outdoors. There are archaeological sites recorded all over the state, from the coastal estuaries to the high desert of eastern Oregon. I will talk briefly about the broad scope of archaeological research in Oregon, then about  2-3 known sites along familiar river ways including their prehistoric, historic, and modern importance. Finally, I will outline the federal and state laws which are relevant to the protection of archaeological resources.
