The Gala Archaeological Site in Botetourt County was occupied by Native Americans from circa 3000-1000 B.C. to ca. 900-1607. Archaeological resources at the site include intact remains ranging in function from mortuary to architectural to subsistence as well as community refuse. The site has the potential to provide scholars invaluable information about Native American funerary practices, settlement patterns, ethnic diversity, and other information about the people who inhabited the upper James River portion of southwestern Virginia.
