Oregon Archaeology Celebration
October 2014

It happened 14,400 years ago

This year's poster highlights the archaeology of Paisley Caves in south-central Oregon.  Human coprolites with intact DNA date to as early as 14,400 years ago.  The quantity of dated coprolites, the depth and archaeological context which they were found support Paisley Caves as arguably the earliest well-documented human occupation in North America.
