Abstract : On November 19, 1981, the Great Lakes Archaeological Research Center, Inc. was notified by the Rock Island District Corps of Engineers to proceed with evaluatory testing at 11Jd126, a threatened archaeological site in the lowland floodplain of Navigation Pool 12 in the Mississippi River. The evaluation was geared towards determination of the sites eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places. The testing began late in November 1981 and efforts were severely hampered by poor field conditions. However, in the short amount of time expended at the site, it became clear that the site likely meets the criteria for eligibility to the National Register. In situ deposits consisting of a sheet midden and pit features were identified as representing Middle and Late Woodland components. The results of the testing have produced the first lowland floodplain adaptive strategy information for these periods within this region.
