Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis is based on the excavations of the Robert Newell farmstead (35MA41), excavated in 2002 and 2003 by the Oregon State University Department of Anthropology archaeological field school. Robert Newell lived at this farm from 1843- 1854. Major architectural features, including a brick hearth and postholes were discovered at the site. This is the first early historic site excavated with such intact architectural features since the Willamette Mission site found in the 1980s. The data from the excavation also revealed artifacts dating from the 1830s through the mid 1850s. I have hypothesized an occupation prior to 1843, when Robert Newell moved onto the property. Based on this hypothesis, a settlement model has been proposed for the site based on the analysis of the archival and archaeological data. I specifically propose that John Ball, Nathaniel Wyeth's farm workers and William Johnson occupied the site prior to Robert Newell's arrival in 1843.
