Flood project dig unearths artifacts, human remains
Archaeologists gave a presentation last week of the results of their dig at the future site of the flood project, which unearthed numerous artifacts and 65 sets of human remains associated with the Wappo American Indians and other tribes who inhabited the area.

The survey involved excavation of four sites in Vineyard Valley Mobile Home Park and the adjacent vineyards, as well as one site on the opposite side of the Napa River. The work was required as part of the flood project’s environmental review.
