Recreated traditional cache pits from the Late Woodland Period in an effort to better understand the pits that surround Douglas Lake and the people that once used them. I created an accurate scenario of ancient food caching, with an end result of crop viability after a winter of caching. I cached two different but complimentary types of foodstuff (berries and nuts vs. fish) at two different altitudes in order to understand if different elevations effected food preservation.
