Cultivating Methods for New Conclusions: An Analysis of Oneota Copper Artifacts of the Lake Koshkonong Region in Southeastern Wisconsin (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jacqueline Pozza.

Despite almost two centuries of North American prehistoric copper research, intensive archaeological investigations focusing specifically on Oneota copper are less abundant. Building upon previous studies, this project documented and analyzed over 500 Oneota copper artifacts in an effort to assess the production, utilization, and ideological and social significance of this copper materials. The artifacts of this study were recovered from four Oneota sites adjacent to Lake Koshkonong in Jefferson...


Early Oneota Longhouses in Southeastern Wisconsin (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Robert Jeske. Katherine Sterner.

Since 1998, archaeologists from UW-Milwaukee have conducted long-term, systematic excavations at the 12th-15th century Crescent Bay Hunt Club site (47JE0904). The Crescent Bay Hunt Club site is unique among early Oneota sites because of the three distinct forms of structures discovered there. This paper focuses on longhouses: portions of at least three longhouses have been recovered from the site. Evidence suggests that these longhouses are at least two hundred years older than previously dated...


Foodway Variability in the Oneota Tradition: A Pilot Study of Cooking Pots (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jeffrey Painter. Jodie O'Gorman.

As a tradition, Oneota encompasses a wide geographic area and several groups, each with their own unique developmental histories. It also encapsulates multiple population movements and other complex social interactions that took place in various areas. Living in a dynamic social setting, different Oneota groups likely negotiated their social landscape in diverse ways. Foodways may have been one way that Oneota peoples either adapted to or set themselves apart from those with which they came in...


Introduction to the DMM-MSU Morton Village Project (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Michael Conner. Jodie O'Gorman. Nicole Silva.

Morton Village and Norris Farms #36 cemetery, located in the central Illinois River valley in Fulton County, Illinois, offer a rare opportunity to investigate migration and conflict with multiple data sets. The cemetery was excavated in the 1980s for highway improvements. Archaeologists from the Dickson Mounds Museum branch of the Illinois State Museum recovered 264 apparent Oneota burials dating to ca. A.D. 1300, and the cemetery is well known for the high level of violence evidenced. The...

Life During Wartime: Children, Violence, and Security at Morton Village (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jennifer Bengtson. Jodie O'Gorman. Amy Michael.

Children are not immune to the violence of war. They can be incidental victims, prime targets, active participants, beneficiaries of fierce protection, or the recipients of warfare-related symbolic action. Though not subject to the same high rates of violent trauma as their adult counterparts, the available osteological data show that a small number of children interred in the late prehistoric Norris Farms #36 cemetery in Fulton County, Illinois did suffer traumatic injuries, both fatal and...


Middle Grant Creek: a rare example of a single component Huber phase site on the Illinois prairie (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Madeleine McLeester. Mark Schurr.

Our understanding of the protohistoric Huber phase is limited by our small sample of sites from this complex period. We present preliminary findings from the summer 2016 excavation at the Middle Grant Creek (MGC) site at Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie in Wilmington, IL. The site is a well-preserved single component Huber phase, warm weather camp that survived historic farmsteads and the construction and abandonment of an Army arsenal. MGC expands the sample of Huber sites and provides...


Migration and Cohabitation at Morton Village: Future Research Directions (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jennifer Bengtson. Jeffrey Painter. Frank Raslich. Nikki Silva. Andrew Upton.

New evidence for Oneota/Mississippian cohabitation at Morton Village leads us to develop novel questions and models for understanding the nature of social interaction at the site, while also recontextualizing previous analyses and interpretations within a revised framework of migration, cooperation, and ethnogenesis. In addition to carrying out additional excavations to further test hypotheses about the nature of co-habitation and social stress at the site by examining site structure, foodways,...


Oneota Household Dynamics at the Koshkonong Creek Village (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Natalie Carpiaux.

Despite a long history of research into the Late Prehistory of the Upper Great Lakes, insufficient attention has been paid to the nature of early Oneota households. Little is known about their size or composition, nor the nature or degree of interaction between and among them. Contemporaneous houses of different sizes and styles have been noted together at Oneota sites in the southeastern Wisconsin, further emphasizing the need for a greater understanding of Oneota household dynamics. This study...


Oneota Risk Management Strategies and Agricultural Practices (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Richard Edwards.

By its nature, agriculture is a risky endeavor. Unsatisfactory conditions for innumerable environmental or social factors can shift harvests from a bumper crop to famine (e.g., drought, poorly timed frost, enemy raids). All agricultural societies develop practices to mitigate this risk; however, the methods employed are dependent on the environmental contexts, social settings, and historical trajectories of a given group. This study examines paleoethnobotanical and landscape data to determine...


Oneota Subsistence Practices at the Christenson Site (13PK407) (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amanda Bernemann.

The Christenson site (13PK407) is a Moingona phase Oneota site along the Des Moines River, dating to around AD 1250. Excavations took place in both 1983 and 2001 in order to salvage the site from erosion by the Des Moines River. Analysis of the 1983 deer remains indicated a mid- to late-winter season of death, suggesting that the Christenson site represented a winter occupation, This season of occupations differs from other Moingona phase Oneota sites, and this reanalysis of the 2001 faunal...


Only Soil Deep: Geophysical Contributions to an Excavation at an Oneota Village in Northwest Iowa (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Megan Stroh Messerole. Mark Anderson.

Data recovery excavations were conducted during 2016-2017 at the Dixon site (13WD8) a large Oneota village located along the Little Sioux River in northwest Iowa. The University of Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist contracted Megan Stroh, archaeologist at the Sanford Museum and Planetarium, to conduct geophysical surveys before initiation of Phase III excavations. A Geoscan Research FM256 fluxgate gradiometer was employed at three different mitigation locations under both pre- and post-top...

Saint Croix Oneota and 14th Century Migration into the Saint Croix Valley of Minnesota and Wisconsin (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Edward Fleming.

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The Sheffield site is the only known Late Precontact Oneota village along the Saint Croix River of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Additionally, a small collection of Oneota ceramics from a nearby rock shelter site and isolated Oneota sherds point to a slightly more widespread presence in the valley. Still, the general geographic isolation of the Sheffield site and...


A Scraper is Sometimes Just a Scraper: A Multi-Method Approach to Inferring Tool Use at an Oneota Site in Southeastern Wisconsin (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Sterner-Miller. Robert Jeske.

A sample of lithic artifacts from the Crescent Bay Hunt Club site, a 12th-14th century Oneota village at Lake Koshkonong in southeastern Wisconsin, were subjected to a multiple-method analysis to determine individual tool use. In this example, an assemblage based analysis of raw material type and quality, heat alteration and energy input into manufacturing combined with debitage analysis provides an overall understanding of the lithic economy. Triangular bifaces and unifacial tools from Crescent...


The Spatial Distribution of Domestic Facilities in the Multiethnic Morton Village Site (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jessica Yann. Jeff Painter. Michael Conner.

With mounting evidence demonstrating cohabitation between Mississippian and Oneota groups at the Morton Village site, data regarding domestic facilities are crucial for examining how these two distinct groups interacted and influenced one another in their daily lives. The distribution of house types (wall trench versus single post) provides interesting evidence for some degree of segregation between the two, while data from features suggests a more complex and intermingled relationship. This...

Symbols of Ferociousness: Oneota Trophy Taking (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Eric Hollinger.

The late prehistoric Oneota tradition developed and spread rapidly across an immense territory in a very short period of time. That expansion, and the period of territorial stability which followed were marked by violence on large and small scales. Taking of human trophies was an integral component of the violence of the time and was steeped in warrior tradition, religious ritual and symbolism reflecting broadly held ideologies. Trophy taking was likely more common than has been acknowledged....


Troubled Times in Late Prehistoric Wisconsin: Violent Skeletal Trauma Among the Winnebago Phase Oneota (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alexandria Oemig. Jordan Karsten.

In 1991, Milner et al. published a groundbreaking article that showed the Native American Oneota culture in a new light. Their research at the Norris Farms #36 cemetery in west-central Illinois indicated that the Oneota there were plagued by intergroup violence and small-scale tribal warfare. Milner et al. examined 264 skeletons and discovered evidence for trauma on 43 (16.29%). At least one-third of adults at Norris Farms #36 died violent deaths. However, the group at Norris Farms #36 was part...
