Archaeological artifacts: Looks at the evidence of human use of the mountain’s resources. Evidence now shows humans have hunted and gathered around the mountain for at least the last 8,500 years and maybe 9,600 years, Burtchard said. Arrow points, projectile points and a 2,000-year-old stone hammer are part of the display. It also includes a modern-day atlatl, similar to one used by ancient Indians to hunt big game. Tours might be offered this summer for the public to visit the site where the artifacts were found by a team from Central Washington University.
