Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis deals with the archaeological investigations of an 1897-1898 gold rush structure in the town of Dyea, Alaska. Little is known about this structure (Feature 96) from the historical records. A three year project was conducted to investigate Feature 96 in order to determine the function of the structure, the location of the structure in relation to the town plat, and if the artifacts represent occupation during or after the gold rush era. A detailed map of the remaining lumber was drawn and archaeological testing was conducted to gather artifacts in order to identify the buildings structure. These excavations were conducted around the perimeter of Feature 96 as well as excavation of intrusive features to the west of Feature 96.
