Abstract or Summary
  • The Neptune site (35LA3), a small shell midden, is located approximately five kilometers south of Yachats on the central Oregon coast. Test excavations were conducted at the site during the summer of 1973 by Oregon State University under the direction of Dr. Richard E. Ross. A shell analysis was later proposed, and column samples were taken in the spring of 1977. Although the information obtained from the shell analysis was limited, when combined with faunal data from the test excavation it indicated a spring or summer occupation during which the collection of sea mussel was emphasized. Additional data rounds out the picture of the site as a pre-contact temporary campsite occupied approximately 350 years ago. Comparisons with the shellfish data from other coastal sites in Oregon, Washington, and California indicate that shellfish remains can contribute to the archaeological data base and refinement of seasonal activity models. Methods for the increased utilization of this data are suggested.
