Next OAS General Meeting May 2, 2017
Bill White will present a lecture on
“Cixwicen Village and Cemetery.”
The Klallam village of Cixwicen has existed for 2,700 years on the southern shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. This village had one of the richest artifact collections ever seen in Western Coastal Washington. Over 64,770 artifacts were eventually unearthed after state contractors discovered some artifacts when digging a dry dock on the site to repair the Hood Canal Bridge in 2003. Read more here>>
