Long Branch Lake Survey 1974-1978

Summary

The Long Branch Lake Survey 1974–1978 was authorized under the Flood Control Act of 1965 (Grantham 1986:1). The investigation was initiated because the construction of Long Branch Lake would directly impact and result in the loss of significant archaeological data. Since preservation was unfeasible, the USACE, Kansas City District, contracted with Northeast Missouri State University to recover archaeological data in order to mitigate the effects of construction. Between the summer of 1974 and the fall of 1978, Mr. Larry Grantham, the principal investigator, conducted an archaeological Phase I corridor survey, yielding 260 archaeological sites, and performed subsequent Phase II testing and Phase III archaeological mitigations on several of the sites (Grantham 1986). The 1974–1978 archaeological surveys, which consisted of locating and excavating multiple prehistoric and historical archaeological sites, were conducted in Macon County, Missouri, along the East Fork of the Chariton River.

The digital materials in this collection were processed by the Veterans Curation Program (VCP), and include the artifact database, collection management report, finding aid, original investigation report, oversized material database, photographic material database, select archival photographs, and select artifact photographs. Additional digital materials held by the VCP include additional archival photographs, additional artifact photographs, administrative files, archives database, box labels, document folder listing, draft records, initial data collection, notes, oversized labels photographic material labels, records removal sheet, and report records. For additional information on these materials, refer to the finding aid.
