Abstract:

The University of South Dakota conducted a cultural resource survey of all lands held in fee title at the Lake Traverse--Bois des Sioux project. The cultural resource investigation consisted of a Phase II, 100 percent pedestrian reconnaissance of all surveyable fee title lands which permitted examination of the ground surface, minimum site testing, and records searches. Field reconnaissance resulted in recording three new sites. The sites contain two prehistoric components and one historic component. The prehistoric components are attributed to late prehistoric occupation of the area. The historic component is an early 20th century Euro-American farmstead. It is recommended that two sites are potentially significant. The two sites are a large, prehistoric village and the historic farmstead. A proposal for Phase III preservation and mitigation for the known cultural resources is developed. author
