Report based on paper presented at the Society for California Archaeology -Archaeology of Northern California- Symposium, 1990, and revised by Greenway and Ritter before 2006-2015-coverIncludes bibliographical references pages 46-50The Buckskull Site is located at Eaton Roughs, part of the northwest trending ridge system between the Van Duzen and Mad Rivers. This bench site appears to be a predominantly Middle Period camp emphasizing chert tool manufacture. Testing suggests extreme quantities of lithic reduction debris including large numbers of biface fragments and some uniface fragments. Very few complete tools were recovered. Debitage analysis demonstrates evidence of heat treatment and intermediate to advanced states in the reduction sequence. Using regional projectile point typologies, Buckskull specimens fit well with points from the Oregon, McKee Uniface and Menddocino Series
