Archaeological Intensive Assessment, DNR Project E15-702C - Mississinewa Reservoir, Wabash County, Indiana


A series of test pits plus additional shovel probes and surface reconnaissance on Site Wb-24 indicated that the primary concentration of cultural materials had been in a field, where it was heavily disturbed, rather than the adjacent woods and that the wooded portion of the site contained only scattered remains that do not appear to meet the National Register criteria of significance. However, it was also noted that there are additional possibly significant sites associated with a nearby chert outcrop and that these may be subject to secondary impact as a result of the proposed construction.
