An Archaeological Report on a Cave Deposit (D1-30)

Author(s): Joan E. Freeman; A. Elkins

Year: 1959


During the month of May, 1938, archaeological excavations were begun and completed in a cave (D1-30) which was located in the bluffs on the west side of Woodward Hollow in Delaware County, Oklahoma. The excavation of this site as well as the excavation of other sites, was conducted in the area of Delaware County bordering the Grand or Neosho River, an area which was flooded by water which backed up in the river valley after the construction of a dam near Langley. The entire salvage program, carried on between 1937 and 1940, was one of the projects of the Works Project Administration and was under the sponsorship of the University of Oklahoma. The particular site was excavated by WPA workman under the supervision of David A. Baerrels.

The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (
