2016 Archaeology Field School: Paleoindian Archaeology in the Sweet Ola Valley
This video shows the area we are exploring for Paleoindian sites from 9,000 to 18,000 years ago in the Sweet-Ola Valley. In the first slides you'll see details of the area we investigated on the Upper Squaw Creek. You'll also see artifacts collected by the landowners of the various sites. We investigated 720 acres of private property adjacent to Boise National Forest. The preliminary results of our investigation are promising. The slides and videos show students from the 2016 field school excavating, sifting dirt, and mapping artifacts with our robotic Total Station survey instrument. There are several time lapse videos, GoPro handheld footage, and iPhone video capture. The last slides show the Fennel family that has been very helpful in procuring permissions to excavate and survey in the Sweet-Ola Valley. Special thanks to them!
