OREGON FINE-GRAINED VOLCANIC (FGV) TOOLSTONE SOURCE CATALOG

Although the lab FGV studies are often fueled by specific CRM projects, research in Oregon has been considerably less project-driven than in other states. For now, we're simply assembling a statewide collection of potential FGV sources and will be evaluating their archaeological significance at a later date. Special credit goes to Bill Lyons (University of Washington State) for locating and collecting source specimens from many of the southeastern Oregon locales.
