Archaeological Sites, Crawfish and Rock River Valleys, Rock, Jefferson, and Dodge Counties, Wisconsin

» Downloads & Basic Metadata


From 2000 through 2010, GLARC has conducted numerous archaeological studies within the Rock and Crawfish River valleys, in southeastern Wisconsin. Collectively these studies have included identification, National Register evaluations, and archaeological data recovery operations at sites ranging from the Late Paleoindian through Late Woodland periods.

Archaeological data recovery operations were completed at three open air Native American sites in the region. The sites are Sauerhammer (47JE0185), Strauss-Neis (47JE1142), and Lee Rickerman (47JE1142) and include Middle Archaic, Late Archaic, Early Woodland, and Late Woodland occupations. Intact cultural features, including hearths and refuse pits, 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.
