Kaien Siding/Ya asqalu’i Prince Rupert Report Completion

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.

A compressed version of the report can be downloaded here (PDF). If you would like to receive a full version of the report, please contact us.

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!
