showing the strong morphological similarities between tools of the same functional type.
By Dr. James C. Chatters
The Eagle Gorge Terrace site (45-KI-1083), located along the Green River in the foothills of the Cascade Range, is one such site—a hunting camp containing a specialized tool kit and a large collection of calcined (burnt) faunal remains dating to the sixth or seventh century AD. Analysis of this assemblage and comparison with the approximately contemporary nearby village of Tualdad Altu (45-KI-59) demonstrates that upland hunters used a discrete subset of their culture’s technology in a highly focused effort to process meat and hides from some of the region’s largest land mammals.
