Burtchard has the same reaction as he and his team continue to find evidence of people living and gathering food on Mount Rainier so long ago.

“It is one of the most important sites I’ve worked on. It allows us to rebuild 8,000 years of environmental changes side by side with human use.”

“It’s just a tremendous sense of discovery,” he said. “It’s been sitting there 7,600 years and you were fortunate enough to find it.

“Finding the item is a great discovery, but also what it means, that people have been using that area for 7,600 years.”
