Posted on Jan 21, 2015 in What's New

Archaeological Investigations at Ya asqualu'i/Kaien Siding, Prince Rupert Harbour
We are ecstatic – if that is possible still after such a marathon of effort and concentration – to announce that the Kaien Siding/Ya asqalu’i Archaeological Project Report has been completed and reviewed and is now ready for distribution. A few hardcopies have been printed and are on their way  to the must-haves.  We are confident most people will prefer the pdf version. There is a main report and a number of appendices that include a catalogue and all the specialized studies, including the comprehensive faunal analysis by Dr. Susan Crockford.

As well as the conventional report, there are 3-D model files of select artifacts and high resolution photos of the artifacts.  The main geodatabase of all spatial data, including such things as the faunal remains. is available on request. All data is copyrighted.  Please ask permission to use any of this.

A small “Read This Metadata” file explains the different files and directories.

They can be downloaded from our web site.  You CANNOT use Internet Explorer or any another Web Browser!  If you try to click on the links below or paste it into a browser  it will not work.  Use Windows Explorer, MAC “Finder” or FTP software. Mac users if unfamiliar can read about the ‘excellent and little-known feature’ they already have here: http://osxdaily.com/2011/02/07/ftp-from-mac/

Here is the ftp address site:


Once in the ftp site, it is also recommended that you copy and paste the username/password from the following:

Password: KaienArchaeology

We hope that this becomes a substantive contribution to the archaeology of the Northwest Coast.  Thanks to the many that helped make it possible and contributed in a large or small way!


  1. Can I access the report from a Mac ? If so how?

  2. George and other Mac users. Apparently Mac OS “Finder” has built-in FTP protocols, like Windows Explorer.
    Here’s an FTP with Mac OSX tutorial:


    Otherwise there are free FTP applications available for OSX.
