The Marmes Rockshelter is one of the most significant archaeological sites in the Pacific Northwest, not only due to its 11,000-year record of human use beginning in early Holocene times, but also because of the attention it generated towards American archaeology throughout the Northwest, the nation, and the world. This volume includes a complete analysis and interpretation of all available information from the site's rockshelter and floodplain areas. It also represents the completion of a final report some thirty-five years after the Marmes site was excavated.
