Document Description
Construct a replica of a Miwok Bark House at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park for interpretive purposes. The conical structure will consist of a framework of 15' pine poles covered with 10'-12' long slabs of cedar bark that are 6-8 inches thick. The structure will be about 10.5' in diameter at the base. The structure will have an opening of approximately 4' high and 3' wide. The poles and cedar bark slabs will be buried at the base in a trench 4-6 inches deep and the poles and bark slabs will be wired together at the top. Construction will require excavating a trench 4-6 inches deep around the perimeter of the bark house to anchor the structure. This excavation will be monitored by a DPR-qualified archaeologist.
