Mid-crustal transpression at amphibolite to granulite facies conditions is dominated by two major, 400 km exposed, strike-slip shear zones bounding a 20–40 km wide high-grade Orogen Core.

The initial discoveries were of projectile points and pottery up to 8,000 years old, and evidence of wigwams built centuries apart.

Crews have been digging all summer unearthing evidence of Pig Point's "suburbs."The biggest surprise has been the wide distribution of artifacts. The archaeology team's approach begins with the digging of shovel-test-pits a couple of feet deep that are set up in a grid across the potential study area.
A promising site will have clusters of shovel pits with some artifacts or other evidence in spots scattered across the grid.
