Abstract or Summary
  • The Whale Cove Site, 35LNC60, is a shell midden, showing occupations from 3010 B.P. to 330 B.P., spanning the Early and Late Littoral Periods. Analysis of mammalian faunal remains, bone and antler tools, lithics and discriptions of recovered shellfish artifacts allows for chronological refinement of the previously mentioned archeologically defined periods. The data suggest that during the Early Littoral Period terrestrial resources were still a major focus of the subsistence system; that the distribution of marine mammals, specifically northern fur seals and California sea lions, were not similar to their known historic distributions and that the coastal area was occupied for most of the year, if not year around. The data from the Late Littoral suggest the utilization of the coast in terms of a subsistence economy similar to that of a logistic collector focusing on the seasonal exploitation of harbor seals and with less diversity in the other analyzed material culture remains.
