Abstract : An archaeological field survey was conducted of two areas within Rock Island County, Illinois, for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District. One archaeological site, Site Number W-547-1, and an isolated artifact were discovered within an area to be used for fill disposal. The site was tested, but no cultural features were identified. On the basis of the testing, it was recommended that no further archaeological work be done at the site. The report includes a summary of the areal prehistory and history, a detailed description of the survey methodology, and a description of the project results.
