Summary

23SC2101, also known as the Louis Blanchette Site in St. Charles, Missouri, is a multi-component site with both French Colonial and Native American levels. Lindenwood University discovered two outbuildings on the site, and two Native American features. Field schools partially excavated the floors of the outbuildings, discovering what are probably Native American artifacts in one of these.  The Native American artifacts found at the site are possibly linked to Blanchette’s Native American wife, but for the time being it is unsure if these were left behind by previous Native American occupants of the site.  Statistical analysis suggests there is a relationship between the lithics and Native American pottery found in the dirt floors of the outbuilding to the French Colonial occupation.
