This is a well written book covering archaeology in Washington. It covers the many sites across the state.

From whalebone middens at Ozette Beach to Kennewick Man to the Whitman Mission, Ruth Kirk and Richard Daugherty's new book provides an engaging tour of the rich archaeological history of our state. The pages are rich with photographs of Northwest landscapes, excavation scenes and historical artifacts, and also include a wealth of maps, line drawings and easy-to-navigate sidebars of interest.

Richard Deo Daugherty (March 31, 1922 – February 22, 2014) was an American archaeologist and professor, who led the excavation of the Ozette Indian Village Archeological Site in Washington state during the 1970s. The Ozette Indian Village, which was. The Ozette Indian Village, which was buried and preserved in a mudslide in the 1700s, has been called "most significant archaeological digs of the 20th century" in the Pacific Northwest. Daugherty collaborated closely with the Makah during the dig, which uncovered more than 55,000 artifacts.

Archaeology--along with Native American traditions and memories--holds a key to understanding early chapters of the human story in Washington. This all-new book draws together and brings up to date much of what has been learned about the state's prehistory and the environments early people experienced. It presents a sample of sites representing Washington's geographic regions and touches on historical archaeology, including excavations at fur-trade forts and the Whitman mission, and Cathlapotle, a Columbia River village visited by Lewis and Clark.The authors portray the discovery of a mastodon butchered by hunters on the Olympic Peninsula 14,000 years ago; the nearly 13,000-year-old Clovis points in an East Wenatchee apple orchard; an 11,200-year-old “Marmes Man” in the Palouse; and the controversial “Kennewick Man,” more than 9,000 years old, eroded out of the riverbank at Tri-Cities. They discuss a 5,000-year-old camas earth oven in the Pend Oreille country; 5,000 years of human habitation at Seattle's Metro sewage treatment site; the recovery at Hoko River near Neah Bay of a 3,200-year-old fishnet made of split spruce boughs and tiny stone knife blades still hafted in cedar handles; and the world-renowned coastal excavations at Ozette, where mudslides repeatedly swept into houses, burying and preserving them.The tale ranges from the earliest bands of hunters, fishers, and gatherers to the complex social organizations and highly developed technologies of native peoples at the time of their disruption by the arrival of Euro-American newcomers. Also included is a summary of the changing role, techniques, and perspectives of archaeology itself, from the surveys and salvage excavation barely ahead of dam construction on the Snake and among Columbia rivers to today's collaboration between archaeologists, Native Americans, private landowners, and public agencies. Color photographs, line drawings, and maps lavishly illustrate the text.

This book by Ruth Kirk (author of many Washington guidebooks) and Richard Daugherty (a leading Washington State University archaeologist involved in many of the studies discussed in the book) provides a wonderful introduction to the field of archaeology and to many of the diverse sites which have been studied across the state of Washington. In the process, the reader is exposed to many themes: the dramatic geologic events that characterize the state's history (volcanoes, tsunamis, mudslides, ashfalls, giant floods), food-gathering and cultural patterns of Native Americans, long-term patterns of climate change, and effects of European contact. A very interesting chapter on archaeology of newer sites related to European settlement is also provided. The photos and list of references at the back of the book are excellent. This book makes me want to go out and visit the sites (where possible) and museums to see what is discused firsthand.
