Abstract : This literature search and records review of the Upper Mississippi River Basin (River Mile 857.6, above St. Anthony Falls, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnesota to Lock & Dam 10, (Guttenberg, Iowa) was authorized by the St. Paul District Corps of Engineers as part of its master plan for the 9-foot navigation project. The objectives of the investigation were to: 1. conduct a comprehensive review of existing records and review published and unpublished literature; 2. provide an evaluation of recorded cultural resources; and 3. prepare a detailed technical and popular report. Site-specific information was compiled for both historic and prehistoric sites from state agencies in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, and from various local and regional institutions. More than 1,000 historically or architecturally significant sites and districts, and more than 1,400 prehistoric archaeological components were recorded and plotted on base maps. From the site configurations and from other data collected during the course of the records and literature review, a narrative framework for the interpretation of historic and prehistoric sites was developed. Recommendations to enhance the management of the archaeological and historical data base were provided. The bibliography is arranged in five sections: (1) Archaeology & Environmental Bibliography; (2) Historic Sources Bibliography; and the third, fourth, and fifth sections refer to periodicals, archive files, and maps.
