45KT28 ~ Artifacts from the Level Bags

   

The following images are scans made in 2021 of materials left in level bags from the excavation in the House Pit 15 area. None of these artifacts, or in the accompanying catalog, is included in the assemblage summaries for the associated cultural components (VIIA, VIIB, VIIC, VIIF, VIIH, VIIL, and VIIU). If you are interested in the frequency of blades, utilized flakes, unshaped or minimally shaped tools, you will need to recalculate these summaries.

 
45KT28/5018, narrow nosed scraper with residue, VIIL, Cayuse III Subphase, Square 11R2, 0 - 18". Possibly heat treated. Use View Image to enlarge. View the other side here.
