Abstract:

An archaeological field survey was conducted of two areas, a proposed borrow pit Project Area A and a proposed levee along the Mississippi River within the Bettendorf vicinity, Scott County, Iowa, for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District. A stone and gravel quarry located adjacent to the proposed borrow are Project Area A may be historically significant on the bais of its being the earliest known example of this kind of industrial development in the Bettendorf area. A prehistoric site that consisted of four non-diagnostic artifacts scattered over a very wide area was also discovered in Project Area A. Subsurface shovel testing revealed no additional cultural material orin situ archaeological features. It was determined that the site possesses no cultural or archaeological significance and no further investigation is recommended. The report includes a discussion of the environmental setting, a summary of the areal prehistory and history, a detailed description of the survey methodology, a description of the project results, and recommendations for further work in the area.
