Summary

In mid-June 1976, the Division of Archeological Research was contacted by the Midwest Archeological Center concerning the need for a preliminary evaluation of cultural resources located in the vicinity of the planned White River Development, Badlands National Monument, South Dakota. In addition to an archeological survey, a paleontological reconnaissance was requested. These investigations were to be implemented in conjunction with a National Park Service assessment of potential impacts resulting from the development of interim visitor and management facilities in the South Unit of the

Monument.

Formal arrangements between the University and the National Park Service for this work were concluded in late June; the field investigation was initiated on July 12 and completed on July 24, 1976. The project was conducted under the general supervision of Carl R. Falk. Steve Holen directed the archeological field investigation and prepared a draft report covering the results of these activities. Robert Pepperl prepared the inventory of cultural materials recovered during the field effort. Dr. Michael R. Voorhies and Ms. E. Jane Voorhies were responsible for the evaluation of paleontological resources. A letter detailing results of the field investigation together with an assessment of potential project impact was forwarded to the Midwest Archeological Center on August 3, 1976. The following report completes documentation of all phases of the investigation under the original purchase

order agreement.
