Abstract:

A pedestrian survey of lands lying within the area of a proposed flood control alternative located on Lost Creek near Columbus, Nebraska, was completed in April 1979 under an agreement between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District and the University of Nebraska. Three archeological sites were identified two of these sites 25pT38 and 25PT39 yield contemporary 20th century debris, while a third site 25PT37 appears to represent prehistoric use of the area. All three sites will be partially destroyed by the proposed action. Further investigation of the two recent loci is not recommended neither site is considered eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Further field evaluation of site 25PT37 including subsurface tests is recommended to permit assessment of research potentials and possible National Register eligibility. Author
