River Basin Surveys Papers: Inter-Agency Archaeological Salvage Program, No. 21-24


The four papers comprising the present volume report the results of four excavations in three reservoir areas. One, the Texarkana, is located in northeastern Texas on the Sulphur River; the second, the Coralville, in east-central Iowa on the Iowa River; the third, the McNary Reservoir, on the Columbia River between the States of Washington and Oregon; and, the fourth, the Sheep Island site and mid-Columbia River valley. All four projects were carried on by the River Basin Surveys of the Smithsonian Institution in cooperation with the National Park Service and the Corps of Engineers. All four papers are a part of the larger Smithsonian Institution program that carried out much of the archaeological work conducted as part of the River Basin Survey.
