Abstract

A geophysical investigation of an archaeological site in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, Alaska, was conducted in 2014 by an interdisciplinary team consisting of researchers from Cornell University, Bucknell University, Central Washington University, and the U. S. National Park Service. The site is known for a historic cabin, Slaven's Roadhouse, which was constructed on a deep, stratified river terrace. This landform was previously found to contain archaeological materials that are at least 4000 years old. The geophysical study, which included a combination of ground-penetrating radar, magnetic, electromagnetic, and electrical methods, revealed details of the depositional context and potential archaeological features of likely Middle Holocene origin, the age of which is supported by radiocarbon dates of charcoal found in association with some of the detected anomalies.
