Abstract : This study is basically a literature survey of archaeological, historical, and paleontological data pertaining to the Sheyenne and Maple River basins in North Dakota. The majority of the text is descriptive and consists of a series of tables, figures, and appendices presenting the relevant data. In addition, an effort is made to construct a climatic sequence and a culture history for the research area and the eastern northern Plains in general. Correlations between the two sequences and internal differences within the culture history scheme are used to develop a series of questions or hypotheses, of broad anthropological relevance, which could be tested by future fieldwork in the Sheyenne and Maple River basins.
