A Prehistoric Camp at Fairbanks, Alaska
Distributed for University of Alaska Press
Now, using a variety of information sources, Dr. Charles M. Mobley has produced a comprehensive monograph on the Campus Site. Original excavators of the 1930s and 1960s helped describe the site and the excavation methods used. Pen-and-ink illustrations of the artifacts--assembled together on loan from various institutions for the first time--yield a detailed picture of the artifact types found, including the famous "Campus-type" microblade cores. Radiocarbon dates indicate the site to be more recent than previously thought. The result is a reference volume, for both professional and amateur archaeologists, that addresses the crucial questions raised about the Campus Site and provides a basis for evaluating relations with cultures elsewhere in North America, Asia, and Europe.
