The Ozette Dig: Unearthing the Past, Shaping a Future

Paul Gleeson, Chief, Cultural Resources Management, Olympic National Park

Over three hundred years ago a mudslide covered part of the Ozette Village, preserving a moment in time of the rich life of a Makah village, even while it crushed and destroyed buildings. Evidence of this tragedy surfaced in 1966, offering an extraordinary view of the past. Archaeologist Paul Gleeson spent several years on the Ozette excavation and will share reflections on those exciting times and discoveries.  Artifacts from the Ozette Village site are displayed in the Makah Museum in Neah Bay.
