Looters do great damage to archaeological site in Lewis & Clark NHP

Artifact poachers, likely armed with a metal detector, dug up artifacts in an area of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park in Oregon that is a listed archaeological site.


Park officials said the area near the Netul River Trail was heavily damaged, with the most severe damage along the bank of a tidal river where approximately 15 cubic yards of soil was disturbed - the size of one-and-a-half dump truck loads.
