Abstract
  • This thesis describes investigations of archaeological materials recovered from Site ORBE2, an early-twentieth century historic site in Corvallis, OR. The archaeological materials were found only after construction workers had excavated trenches underneath the still-standing structure on the site in order to install a new foundation. Over 1500 artifacts were recovered from back-dirt piles which had been left surrounding the structure from the construction worker's excavations. The analysis of the artifacts contributes to the field of archaeology in four specific ways: 1) it performs an archaeological analysis on an early-twentieth century Euro-American site, an era upon which few previous investigations have been done. 2) it develops a history of the site, 3) it combines the results of the history and the analysis of the archaeological data from functional and chronological perspectives, determining possible past life-style information on these residents, and 4) it exhibits the utility of performing an archaeological analysis on a site where the archaeological materials were recovered from an urban renewal/construction zone, and has provenience limited to a lot or site association.
