ARCHAEOLOGICAL DATA RECOVERY AT 47GT593 (KIELER I), USH 151 CORRIDOR (BELMONT TO DICKEYVILLE), GRANT COUNTY, WISCONSIN
Part of the Archaeological Sites, Driftless Area, Grant County, Wisconsin project
In November and December of 2003 and April through September of 2004, Great Lakes Archaeological Research Center, Inc. conducted Phase III data recovery operations at the Kieler I site (47GT593) on behalf of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Federal Highways Administration as part of the reconstruction of USH 151, Dickeyville to Belmont, Grant and Lafayette counties, Wisconsin (WisDOT Project ID #1209-02-00).
This archaeological investigation was conducted in conjunction with the Phase I, II, and III investigations of the nearby Bend in the Creek site (47GT693). Nearly 40,000 prehistoric artifacts as well as 1555.94 g of faunal and fl oral material were recovered from Kieler I and the cultural assemblage indicates occupations at the site in the Late Archaic Durst phase (1000 – 500 B.C.), Early Woodland Indian Isle and Prairie phases (500 BC – AD 100), and the Middle Woodland Millville phase (AD 200 – 500), with earlier and later occupations also likely. The most substantial occupation occurred in the Prairie phase (100 BC – AD 100) when the site may have harbored a residential camp. Following the Phase III excavations, much of the Kieler I site was obliterated by the USH 151 reconstruction process.
