The Marmes Rockshelter Site

Appendices (Hicks 2004)


In 2004, Brent Hicks, in cooperation with the Colville Confederated Tribe, published an edited volume about the Marmes site. This one-volume report compiles chapters on cultural context, environment, stratigraphy, site formation processes, features, human remains, stone tools, bone tools, botanical remains, and faunal remains - mammals birds, reptiles, fish, and shellfish. Appendices include the data analyzed and discussed by each researcher. Links below will allow you to download copies of the database and each of the appendices containing the data used by each researcher.

Any discrepancies between the Marmes Collection Inventory Database and individual appendices can be resolved by contacting staff at the Archaeological Repository.

Burial materails - Human remains and Associated Funerary Objects - are not included in this publicly available copy of the Marmes Collection Inventory Database. Permission to examine these materials must be obtained through the Walla Walla District Office, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
