Abstract : A cultural resources literature search was conducted in the St. Francis River Seepage Project by Mid-Continental Research Associates for the Memphis District, Army Corps of Engineers (COE). The project area involved covers a 1000 foot wide corridor along the St. Francis River between Campbell, Missouri and Marked Tree, in northeast Arkansas, and along the Right Hand Chute of Little River from the Missouri border south to near Marked Tree. The purpose of the project is to furnish the COE with data on the known extent and location of archeological sites and to develop a predictive statement of site locations to aid in the project planning as required by laws and regulations. Search of the State site Files in Arkansas and Missouri resulted in the identification of 30 known sites in the project area. Analysis of the soils variables suggest that approximately 334 additional archeological sites are present in the project area. Previous investigations at sites along the river and certain research problems which are unique to this basin within the Lower Mississippi River Valley suggest that a large proportion of these are likely to be significant in terms of the National Register of Historic Places Criteria.
