Very old fish trap found in the lower Chilkoot River

Very old fish trap found in river
trefwoorden: VS - Florida - visval - 1e eeuw BCE
While walking along the lower Chilkoot River just over a year ago, a Lutak resident noticed a pattern in some wooden stakes embedded on the bank.
Some two dozen partially eroded posts of similar width and height were spaced almost strategically.
The resident contacted local archaeologist Tom Prang, now working on contract for the Chilkoot River Corridor Working Group, who determined the stakes were likely left over from a Native village that once thrived at the Chilkoot.
He sent a stake to Florida's Beta Analytical for carbon dating. Turns out, the resident had come upon remnants of what appears to be a 2,100-year-old fish trap.
