Soils at the Freeman-Paine Archaeological Site, Wellfleet, Massachusetts

Author(s): Walter H. Lyford

Year: 1961


This report, producing results from three days of field study at the Freeman-Paine Archaeological site, is an attempt to give some information on the soils at the site itself related to the age and dating of the site, as well as the planning of a trial run to see whether a study of soils at archaeological sites would provide enough significant information to warrant continuing an association of soil scientists and archaeologists for other studies.

The site was visited on September 22-23, 1960 in company with Mr. Frederick Johnson and Mr. Ross Moffett, and on October 18-19,1960 with Dr. W.F. Harison, Forest Biologist at the Harvard Forest and Mr. Moffett.

The document concludes with multiple letters of correspondence between Dr. Walter Lyford and Mr. Frederick Johnson concerning the organization and development of the site and soil testing.
