Preliminary Report on Archeological Survey in the Apostle Islands
Author(s): Robert J. Salzer
Archaeological research was conducted in the Apostle Islands and on the extreme northern tip of the mainland Bayfield Peninsula during a fourteen-week period in the Fall of 1979 by students and staff of the Department of Anthropology of Beloit College. The research was coordinated around the structure of an archaeological field school which was under the direction of Robert J. Salzer, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Logan Museum of Anthropology.
Site survey techniques were applied to selected portions of the area in question. Limited testing operations were deployed on sites found on the mainland. Simultaneous laboratory procedures were conducted in our field headquarters on the mainland, so that recovered artifactual debris from the mainland and from the island was processed (washed, cataloged, labeled, and examined) within a week after its recovery in the field.
