Comments
EbPw-1: The site covers an area of 11 ha and is characterized by two pictograph sites, 5 circular cultural depressions, lithic scatters, possibly a fluted point in Mr. Richardson's collection. A pestle found under onld historic site by Mr. Richardson. Many points and scrapers reported found here. Detritus, 2 boulder chipped knives, chipped knife scraper. Site so extensive mapping was impossible with limited time available to this crew however, some attempt was made to show areas of concentrations.One of the pictographs shows 3 rows of tally marks with two groupings of bowmen.,There are four quite visible bowmen on the top row beside 27 tally marks. The six bowmen below are quite faded and some are chipped away. The bottom line of tally marks shown by Corner are in poor condition because they are parallel to the ground so appear to have been repeatedly stepped on to view the bowmen painted on the face of the cliff
