Surveying for sites

August 2, 2019

This summer’s field season has been focussing on post-ex work, treating and cataloguing artefacts, rather than excavation. However, the area around Quinhagak has also been surveyed to look for new sites, one promising site was located on the Arolik river front.

Several new late prehistoric and historic sites were mapped and tested this year, however none of them so far have had the remarkably well-preserved deposits of preserved organic materials found at the Nunalleq site.
