    New insights into the prehistory of the Clearwater River region, north central Idaho

    Presented by Robert Lee Sappington

    The Clearwater River drainage is located across north central Idaho and it corresponds to the heart of Nez Perce Country.  The first written records for the area appeared with Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery in 1805 while the first anthropologist to study the Nez Perce arrived in 1889.  Archaeological investigations began in the early 1960s and since the 1980s a series of CRM-mandated excavations have enabled archaeologists to outline a series of cultural phases that have generally been recognized and used by subsequent scholars across the region.
