After controversy over its excavation, the site was sealed off from further digging from until The site was accidentally uncovered by Mark Mickels, and also by farmworker Moises Aguirre Calzada on May 27, , while installing an irrigation line. His digging unearthed about two dozen stone bifaces, which were at first mistaken for tools left by contemporary Indian tribes.
After the Robertses and their orcharding partner Dr. Mack Riy opened the site to further study, beginning init was referred to as the Riy-Roberts Clovis Site and, later, the Riy Clovis Ca. An excavation in Aprilled by Peter J.
Mehringer of Washington State University, with a team of leading local and national authorities in Paleo-Indian Archaeology and members of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, discovered 22 more stone and bone tools, but removed only five for laboratory study.
Riy, who in November bought out his partners and became sole owner of the Clovis site, replaced the Mehringer team with New York archaeologist R. Michael Gramly, who then led another dig in October Gramly had also argued against new laws that, in his view, tied the hands of U.

The sale contract stipulated that no archaeological work could take place for 15 years after the purchase; that moratorium expired June 1,although no new scientific digging has since taken place. Riy sold the entire orchard to a new owner in At this time what was once an archaeological site was re-filled with dirt, covered with a cement slab, and restored to be part of the orchard.
The East Wenate Clovis Site yielded 36 ancient stone tools and 12 transversely beveled rods of carved and in some cases incised mammoth or mastodon bone, plus scores of stone flakes or "debitage" left over from tool manufacture or maintenance.
The ca held the largest Clovis points then known to science, one of them 9. Much of the ca remained "in context" for scientists to explore, meaning it was not overly disturbed by digging prior to archaeological work.
Most major Clovis cas have only been explored after they were unearthed and scattered by road projects and construction work, or removed to private collections.
Some researrs postulated that the ca might have represented a large habitation camp; a hunting toolkit, buried and then dug up for seasonal stalking of game; a ceremonial or funeral site; or a ritual offering to stave off ecological harm brought on by the eruption of nearby Glacier Peak11, radiocarbon years BP, even though the presence of large amounts of debitage and fragmented bone is a good indicator that the site didn't represent a ca at all and the Glacier Peak eruption is thought to have occurred over two centuries before the emergence of the Clovis culture.
