Eight Thousand Years on the Banks of Aughwick Creek
Paul A. Raber of Heberling Associates, Inc.
Small, briefly occupied camp sites are the most frequently encountered archaeological site type. Investigations at a small hunting and gathering camp site in the Aughwick Creek drainage provided a glimpse into the role of such sites over an 8000 year span. Previous archaeological and environmental studies in the watershed have created a rich context for the interpretation of the site, allowing us to identify and characterize the activities that occurred there and their role in the life ways of the ancient inhabitants of the Aughwick Creek Valley.
