Abstract:

The survey resulted in the identification of deeply buried archaeological sites and refinement of our understanding of buried Holocene landscapes. Several of these landscapes and associated archaeological sites can now be relatively dated. A serious limitation is the lack of precise Holocene chronology of occupation sites and landscapes. Previous work did not address the discovery of deeply buried sites. This survey revealed components buried by as much as 15 feet of recent Holocene alluvium.
