McMenamins Mission Theater Oregon Encyclopedia History Night: Discovering Fort Vancouver

Sponsored by Northwest Examiner

Monday, July 2, 2012 – 7 p.m. – Free

Presented by: Dr. Douglas C. Wilson, Archaeologist, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site

Dr. Wilson will discuss the development of the Northwest through the artifacts and narratives of Fort Vancouver, the fur trade headquarters of the Hudson Bay Company and the first US Army post in the Northwest. Fort Vancouver’s museum collection, centered on over 60 years of National Park Service archaeological excavations, provides a tangible means to understanding technological change, health and diet, the history of globalization, and the creation of the Northwest identity.
