Site D1-29, A Rockshelter in Northeastern Oklahoma

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

Year: 1960


The site under discussion in this report was one of approximately seventy-five which were excavated in the area immediately along the Grand or Nesho Rover in 1938-1940. The excavations were conducted through the Works Projects Administration under the sponsorship of the University of Oklahoma. They were designed to salvage as much archaeological material as possible before the dam being constructed on the Grand River backed up water which would inundate the sites. This site and others were excavated by WPA workmen under the supervision of David A. Baerrels. Since the excavation of these sites, the artifacts have been in storage at the Stovall Museum of the University of Oklahoma. In 1958, a project involving the examination of these sites as part of a study of biological and cultural change in the restricted area of northeastern Oklahoma was undertaken by faculty at the University of Wisconsin.

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 (
