This monograph constitutes the report of archeological salvage operations in the upper Yellowtail Reservoir of Montana and Wyoming.

Archeological investigation of the Yellowtail Reservoir area by the River Basin Surveys spanned an 18-year period, from 1946 through the summer of 1964. Actual excavation of endangered sites did not begin until the summer of 1962. Earlier work included only limited, short-term reconnaissance. A total of 81 sites were recorded in the upper reservoir area during the 1946, 1950, 1951. And 1962-64 surveys (Figs. 2, 3).
