Foote Site

Summary

The Metawee District lists this site as being owning by Foote, Mitchinson, & Crachi in 1979 when excavations occurred. The Foote site is located close to water, near an oxbow lake, and thus has river characteristics an steep banks due to the oxbow. The SE corner of the site was surveyed in a systematic fashion and the remaining quadrants were sampled with shovel test pits. The site produced 47 cataloged objects and provided evidence that prehistoric woodland groups were utilizing the woodland river flats to the north of the river channel. Additional information about this site can be found under Foot Site Documents, Foote Site Catalog Guide.
