Class to document historic cannery sites


Haines-based archaeologist Anastasia Wiley will lead a class documenting remains of seven or more local canneries Aug. 19-Sept. 11.

The class will meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings, coordinating with low tides.

Aly Zeiger, who is helping organize the class, said part of the goal of the effort is to create an informational pamphlet on historic canneries here, to be distributed to visitors and interested residents.

A $100 fee for the class includes a textbook and transportation fee.

For more information, call Wiley at 766-3513 or Zeiger at 314-0436, or email Zeiger at

Cannery sites are identifiable sometimes by rows of piling ends extending from shoreline.
