Summary

Following a request from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, an archaeological field reconnaissance was completed for the Mississinewa Reservoir Force Main near Peoria, Miami County, Indiana. The principal investigator was Ronald Hicks of Ball State University. The project involved the construction of 1600 feet of force main and a lift station between the two existing treatment plants. The field reconnaissance, conducted on April 28, 1979, was an intensive pedestrian survey of the proposed route. Shovel probes were placed at various intervals depending on the vegetation and amount of clearly visible soil (Cochran 1979).

Three prehistoric sites were identified by the survey: 12MI2(11), 12MI3(12), and 12MI4(13). Chert flakes were recovered at 12MI2(11) and 12MI4(13) with “chert flakes and a rough blank” being recovered at 12MI3(12) (Cochran 1979: 17). Because no diagnostic artifacts were recovered from any of the sites, it was impossible to assign cultural affiliation or time of occupation to them (Cochran 1979).

The digital materials in this project were processed by the Veterans Curation Program (VCP), and include the artifact database, select artifact photographs, artifact report, finding aid, original investigation report, and scanned asset key. Additional digital materials held by the VCP include additional artifact photographs, field notes, maps and site survey records. For additional information on these materials, refer to the Finding Aid.
