Final Report on the 1980-1981 Mississinewa Reservoir Survey
The survey of the Mississinewa Reservoir was conducted under the direction of William R. Wepler from Ball State University in Grant, Miami and Wabash Counties, Indiana. Two goals were outlined for this survey. The first goal was to locate and evaluate the archaeological resources of the reservoir, and the second goal was to evaluate the impact of the reservoir and its management on the archaeological record of the area. The Lower Mississinewa drainage was established as a unit for comparison to adjacent areas due to questions that arose concerning the relationship of the reservoir area to the remainder of the Mississinewa drainage and to the Upper Wabash drainage in general. Thus information from other sites in the area was included in the report.
The recommendations made following this investigation stemmed from the concern for the future preservation and study of the archaeological resources of the Mississinewa Reservoir. William Wepler suggested that the detailed list of recommendations be used as a preliminary outline for a management plan for the protection and development of the archaeological resources of the Mississinewa Reservoir. Recommendations were made for further testing and surveying to obtain comparative data to perform a complete analysis on the artifactual material collected during this investigation, which would lend to the research of the prehistoric occupation of the Miami (Wepler 1982).
