Salvage Archaeology in Oklahoma: Papers of the Oklahoma Archaeological Salvage Project, Numbers 8-15


The Oklahoma Archaeological Salvage Project is concerned with the salvaging of the prehistoric record of Oklahoma whenever it is threatened with destruction. However the main effort of the project during the period from 1956 to 1958 was the survey and salvage excavation of sites located within the construction right of ways of the state highway system. The site reports contained in this volume represent that period and are devoted exclusively to the sites excavated as part of the highway salvage program.

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 (
