Work continues at Woodburn! We are continuing, in the summer, to investigate a Pleistocene site with microfauna, avifauna, and megafauna.  Collaboration with specialists in these areas will allow for the proper identification of the species.  Occasionally we even see hints of a human presence, through materials such as naturally shed human hair.  One was hand excavated at Legion Park, by physical anthropologist Lyle Hubbard.  The hair had a 3 point provenience, and dated to 12,050 radiocarbon years before present.

We are currently planning to work the High School site, Mammoth Park, next summer.
