Descriptive Analysis of Unmodified Vertebrate Remains From the Medicine Creek Site, Lyman County, South Dakota
Author(s): Carole A. Angus
The Vertebrate materials treated in this analysis were from the Smithsonian Institution River Basin Surveys field parties in 1962 and 1967 during the archeological investigations of the Medicine Creek site (39LM2), located on the right bank of the Missouri River five miles west of the present town of Lower Brule. The investigations revealed remains of three temporally distinct occupations representing the Initial and Extended Variants of the Coalescent Tradition and the Initial Variant of the earlier Middle Missouri Tradition.
The following descriptive analysis was initiated as a class project in the fall of 1973 under the direction of Carl B. Falk, Chief, Midwest Archeological Center. Identification was facilitated through the use of the Center’s comparative faunal collection. Fish remains were identified by Raymond Mundell of the Center. The recorded information was described and tabulated for this report in 1975.
