Geology, Archaeology and History of Seattle

Waterlines is a new online exhibit from the excellent Burke Museum at the University of Washington, Seattle. It tells the story of the land underlying Seattle, one of the United States' most geologically active city sites, and of the human attempts to engineer this landform. Closely related are the archaeology of West Point and Coast Salish Villages of Puget Sound (e.g., read the story of North Wind and Storm Wind).

Wow, nice find, Rumple. There's almost too much information on the Waterlines site.

Excellent post Rumple, Seattle is such an interesting place to witness the relationship of humans and the environment. Clearly neither has complete control. I am amazed at what has happened in the last century alone and I can't even imagine the next.

Nice! To bad I won't be in Seattle for a while, this looks like such an interesting exhibit.
