Abstract
  • During the summer of 1986, an archaeological testing project was completed at seven prehistoric campsites primarily located in the upper Deschutes River Basin of central Oregon. Testing was focused on two low-density "lithic scatters", an archaelogical site type which is especially abundant in this obsidian-rich region but which, to date, has not been extensively studied. Excavations indicated that the obsidian flake scatters post-date the 6800 B.F. eruption of Mount Mazama and represent the remains of hunting camps focused along Fall River. The testing strategy employed provided an alternative approach to testing and evaluating the archaeological significance of obsidian flake scatters located throughout the pumice zone of central Oregon.
