Abstract
  • The Philpott site (35CS1) is located on the north bank of the Coquille River near Bandon, Oregon. Test excavations at the site were conducted in 1978 by Oregon State University under the direction of Richard E. Ross. One artifact assemblage and one distinct component were defined during the analysis of the site. The remnants of fish weirs were present in the adjacent beach zone. Charcoal samples from the upper and lower levels of the component yielded dates of 250±40 BP and 570±50 BP, respectively. The location of the site and the presence of fish weirs, coupled with the artifact and faunal assemblages, indicate that 35CS1 was utilized on a seasonal basis as a fishing camp. Raw materials used in the manufacture of lithic tools also were obtained from the adjacent beach zone. Based on the testing data, the Philpott site was nominated to and subsequently placed on the National Register of Historic Places in January, 1980. To date it is the only prehistoric coastal site in Oregon on the register.
