Building Communities in Oregon: An Archaeological Perspective

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 6:00PM

Join us to hear archaeologist Alexandra Williams-Larson from Archaeological Investigations Northwest speak to us about the communities built by different waves of immigrants to Oregon and the challenges they faced, beginning after the fur trade era up through the mid-twentieth century.

Ms. Williams-Larson will bring artifacts to help illustrate her discussion of the typical archaeological sites associated with different cultural groups and what they can teach us about these groups’ experiences.
