Abstract:

A goemorphic investigation of Pool No. 10 on the Upper Mississippi River at Guttenberg, Iowa, was conducted to identify potential locations of prehistoric cultural resources. The geomorphic maps delineate areas of high and low potential of containing archaelogical sites and can surve as a practical guide having great utility for a comprehensive cultural resource survey. Since the estimation of archaeological potential is based on landform stability through time, the geomorphic maps also have important engineering applications. Author
