In 1861, the town of Champoeg disappeared in one night. We know what happened from recorded stories of townspeople and artifacts found in archaeological digs. Visiting Professor of Archaeology at Willamette University, Cayla Hill, will join us for a lecture on the re-evaluation of the archaeological evidence. Currently, she is researching and analyzing a previously excavated archaeological collection from Block 4 within the Champoeg Townsite.
