Abstract : This report describes the results of an intensive archeological survey of 27.2 sq mi (70.5 sq km) within and adjacent to the drawdown zone of lake Koocanusa (Libby Dam Reservoir) in northwestern Montana. A total of 249 sites and 46 isolated finds representing at least 8,000 years were inventoried. Recovered materials include over 32,000 flaked lithic tools, 4,300 faunal remains, and 600 Euroamerican artifacts. These findings are described in the context of late Pleistocene/Holocene geomerphology and geochronology.
