After subsidence in 1964, the edges of the densely forested site were washed out and the shore became littered with stone artifacts.
From several hundred items collected at various times it appeared that the site could shed light on the elusive period when technological ways on Kodiak changed from the late Ocean Bay tradition that emphasized use of slate lance blades to the Early Kachemak tradition that emphasized grooved cobble fishing weights and notched pebble net sinkers. In 19, Clark returned to Afg-088 to obtain charcoal samples for radiocarbon dating.
Several young persons and adults joined half-day shifts of excavation.
But most children found the work tedious, uninteresting, dirty, wet and tiring.
In some respects it appears to document the development of the former out of Ocean Bay.
