Next OAS General Meeting February 7, 2017
Our speaker will be John Pouley, on
“Stewardship, Archaeology, and Public Outreach: The Background and Sundry Implications Concerning the First Recorded Biface Cache (35MA375) in the Willamette Valley.”
A weekend decision by a private landowner to clear out a patch of out-of-control blackberry bushes on his land led to the discovery of a biface cache near Salem, Oregon in 2015. He reported his find to John Pouley, Oregon Assistant State Archaeologist, and in less than a year the discovery made regional, national and even international news.
