2012 Public Archaeology Field School Blog
About This Blog
This blog documents the work done by Fort Vancouver's 2012 Public Archaeology Field School, presented in conjunction with Portland State University and Washington State University Vancouver. This year's field school will continue explorations in Fort Vancouver's multicultural Village. This colonial village was the largest settlement in the Pacific Northwest in the 1830s and 1840s. It contained people from around the world and the Pacific Northwest, including Native Hawaiians, Scots, French Canadians, African Americans, the Metis, and people of many different American Indian tribes. The field school will provide a means to recapture the early history of Colonial Fort Vancouver, a place of multiculturalism in the Pacific Northwest, while engaging the modern Portland/Vancouver area in the unique history of their closes National Park site. On a technical note, in order to view new blog posts, you may need to clear your Temporary Internet Files or cache. We hope you enjoy learning about our work in the field!
