Summary

Gastropod remains from the 1956 field season deep excavation in the West Shelter area. Gastropods were recovered via either hand picking or screening through 1/4" (6.4mm) mesh.

In 1991, a sample of 1956 strata was chosen by Steven R. Ahler to represent a contiguous cross-section of the 1956 excavations. The gastropod samples from the 1956 excavation were identified and analyzed by James L. Theler (University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse). In 2015, Mona Colburn (Illinois State Museum) entered data into an excel database and uploaded it into tDAR.
