This winter, Portland State University graduate student Emily Taber is running our avocational archaeology laboratory. Our dedicated volunteers-in-park archaeologists are working with Emily, Portland State University Research Assistant Katie Wynia and myself in preparing collections, analyzing, and interpreting the results. This year is special as we are preparing a synthetic report for the multi-year project in the Village. We also have three Washington State University Vancouver and one Portland State University interns helping out. Two are working on the flagstaff project from the summer and they have built a small exhibit in the fur store archaeology corridor inside the reconstructed fort. After about a month of laboratory work, everything is running smoothly and we are getting a handle on the multi-year project.
