Leland Gilsen, former State Archaeologist of Oregon has a pretty impressive website. His extensive notes on aboriginal house styles are particularly worth a read — well referenced, well illustrated, and thoughtful, and he reproduces a lot of plan diagrams from the grey literature. He also has good pages on “pyroculture” (deliberate landscape burning), and extensive notes and commentary on culture history, through a culture-ecological lens. His image-rich virtual museum is a fun and educational slideshow. Hmmm, someone should do a site like this for BC, or Vancouver Island at least. Dr. Gilsen seems like a proud processualist of the Arizona school (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and a serious scholar. At first glance, this web site could easily be used as an undergraduate textbook for a course on the Archaeology of Oregon. Hats off, if I see you at NWAC, first beer is on me.
