MAKING PROGRESS



Despite a rough beginning because of the weather, the group didn't have the same lag experienced last August. Yarborough said it took about a week to get going and become accustomed with the site.

From Henry Swanson Drive, a backhoe has reached up as far as possible, and no more work on the North Face can be done. Now the crew is working on the top of the site.

The crew reached a milestone when the backhoe was able to get to the eastern edge of the area.

"We're still finding a lot of house features from the top. We're collecting artifacts and sending them to the lab," Yarborough said.

The same crew that worked last summer resumed on May 19. The backhoe operator, Joe Henning, was with the crew last summer.

"He's gotten used to us, so we're making good progress," said Yarborough.

Joan Dale, a representative from the state office of archaeology, was there, available in case human remains are found.

Local archaeologist Jason Rogers has been creating extensive maps of the site throughout the whole process.

"It's good stuff, pirate treasure," joked Rogers at the end of a long day.

At a City Council meeting last month, Yarborough gave an update to the community on the progress of the crew and artifacts recovered.

Every month, Yarborough has a teleconference with the Ounalashka Corp., the Qawalangin tribe, the city, the state historical society and the other state organizations.
