James Knobbs, an archaeologist with Northwest Anthropology LLC, will talk about “Meshing with the Past: Investigations into the Prevalence of Archaeological Fish Bone at Upper Pittsburg Landing, Idaho,” at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Fort Walla Walla Museum Grand Hall, 755 Myra Road.

Results of a 1991 archaeological investigation at Upper Pittsburg Landing suggested some prehistoric Native American tribes living in the area were not taking advantage of fish species such as salmon and trout.

Given fish in the region were major sources of food for prehistoric people, these results appear to be questionable.

The presentation explores archaeological methods to understand how the results of this investigation might have been different had better collection methods, specifically finer screen sizes, been utilized.

Etcetera appears in daily and Sunday editions. Annie Charnley Eveland can be reached at or 526-8313.
