Abstract : In the summer of 1988, a phase III data recovery investigation was conducted at three historic sites in Lake Red Rock, Iowa. These included one farmstead and two townsites known as the Sutton site, Dunreath townsite, and Percy townsite, or sites 13MA266, 449, and 347, respectively. All three sites had been previously evaluated and found to be eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Data recovery was necessitated by the anticipated impacts from the proposed pool raise at Lake Red Rock. Data recovery was designed to recover the greatest amount of archaeological and documentary data possible within the confines of the given time limitations. Research and analysis focused on the development of farmsteads and towns; possible socioeconomic variation among Lake Red Rock and other farmsteads; effect of early settlers' region of origin on the configuration of farmsteads; correlations of oral historical, documentary, architectural, archaeological, and dietary data with possible socioeconomic variation within and between the townsites; and evidence of the local stoneware industry at farmsteads and townsites. Research consisted of a multidisciplinary integrative approach involving archaeological, archival, oral historical, architectural, botanical, and faunal data sets. (SDW)
