The images of the pottery shards used to illustrate the Individual membership categories are from the Fort Vancouver Collection.
Archaeological resources like this shape our legacy from the original inhabitants of the fort, its village, and the U.S. military post of Vancouver Barracks. Excavations have occurred on the Site over the last 50 years, yielding a world-class archaeological collection of 1.5 million artifacts, 200,000 of which are arranged in a study collection.
The array of artifacts provides tangible evidence of daily life at the site. While the majority reflect the 35-year Hudson’s Bay Company era from 1825-1860, many artifacts remain from earlier Native American use and the later U.S. Army presence.
