Summary

The accompanying report on Archeological Investigations in the Oahe Dam Area, South Dakota, is Paper No.7 in the River Basin Surveys Papers and constitutes the second Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin to be devoted to results of the Inter-Agency Archaeological Salvage Program. It is the first detailed, technical report to be issued covering a completed series of excavations carried on by the

Missouri Basin Project of the River Basin Surveys of the Smithsonian Institution. The area where the digging was done is an important one in the aboriginal history of the Missouri Basin, and while some previous work had been carried on there, nothing as extensive as the investigations of the Dodd and Phillips Ranch sites had been attempted. The results unquestionably contribute much needed

knowledge on several aspects of Indian life in that portion of the Plains and make possible the outlining of a number of cultural developments. They also provide the framework for a relative chronology

for some of the remains found there.
