Warner Valley Field School in Great Basin Prehistory and Paleoecology

The University of Nevada, Reno, Department of Anthropology, Great Basin Paleoindian Research Unit, and the Lakeview District of the Bureau of Land Management present the 2013 Field School in Great Basin Prehistory and Paleoecology in scenic Warner Valley, Oregon.  The 2013 field school will pick up where we left off in 2011-2012 and we will continue to survey to gain an understanding of how land use patterns changed there throughout the latest Pleistocene and Holocene.  In 2011-2012, we identified a high density of fluted and stemmed point sites indicative of Paleoindian occupations in the valley and will continue to target areas where we know Paleoindian sites are located.  Additionally, we will continue to test open-air sites and caves and/or rockshelters in the search for evidence of late Pleistocene/early Holocene occupations.  Applications are due by May 17th, 2013 and a $100 refundable deposit will secure students a spot on the 2013 crew.
