Northwest Coast Archaeology [via mefi projects]

Rumple has been busy creating a great blog about the archaeology of Northwestern North America, especially coastal Alaska, British Columbia and Washington State. Northwest Coast Archaeology is a fine example of an Internet community: besides Rumple's frequent posts, the blog has a devoted, informed and articulate crowd of commentators that have in-depth discussions about archaeology.

The latest post, Aboriginal bridges of northwestern BC, provides some fine examples of pre-contact (as well as post-contact) First Nations engineering here in North America.

Rumple's blog links to fantastic map resources, paleo-climatology, and Clovis archaelogical culture, among many, many other fascinating topics.

A personal favourite post is a link to an interactive map of Coast Salish villages of Puget Sound.

As an example of the blogs function as a community and teaching resource, Rumple also collates links to theses and dissertations of interest for Northwest Coast and Northwest Interior archaeology.

Fantastic, favorite +++++. Have been wanting to see more of the province lately, and particular interest in Haida Gwaii. This is so great.
