Archaeological Sites, Driftless Area, Grant County, Wisconsin
From 2004 through 2006, GLARC conducted archaeological data recovery operations at four open air prehistoric Native American sites in the Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin. The sites are Roling (47GT628), Kieler I (47GT593), Bend in the Creek (47GT693), and Kieler II (47GT594) and include Early Archaic (8000-4000 B.C.), Late Archaic Durst Phase (1000-5000 B.C.), Early Woodland (300 B.C. to 100 A.D.), and Late Woodland Eastman Phase (A.D. 700-1000) occupations.
Each site contains in situ deposits, and, at a few sites these deposits are deeply buried beneath the current day ground surface. Intact cultural features, including hearths, refuse pits, and possible domestic structures, have been recorded at the sites. The sites have since been largely obliterated by the construction of a transportation corridor. The final reports on the archaeological excavations have been published and exist in a .pdf format. The archaeological records and materials have been submitted for long term curation. The inventory and analysis data for each site exist within an Microsoft Access database.
