Summary

Site 3MN298 is a multicomponent habitation site located along the Upper Ouachita River near Oden in Montgomery County, Arkansas. Diagnostic artifacts at the site are attributed to the Middle Archaic (circa 6000–5000 B.C.), Woodland (circa 1000–0 B.C.), and Mississippian (circa 1450–1650 A.D.) periods, suggesting multiple occupations. Cultural features included clusters of fire-cracked rock, a large trash-filled pit, and post stains from a Caddo house. Five chipped stone tools and two soil control samples were submitted for protein residue analysis to identify the types of game procured and to contribute information on subsistence patterns in the Ouachita Mountains.
