The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Paul District, plans to construct flood control features neat West Fargo, North Dakota. Two cultural material scatters, 32CS42 and 3CS44, were tested for the identification and protection of significant cultural resources. Field testing of the sites included systematic and controlled surface collection and excavation of auger probes and formal 1mx1m test units. Cultural materials were found to be sparse throughout the sites, and most materials were found on the ground surface. On the basis of the results of excavations, controlled surface collections and earlier surface collections, the sites are tentatively associated with the Late Woodland PeriodCulture. Cultural materials within the sites appear to be disturbed by modern agricultural activities, and the sites do not exhibit a likelihood to yield important cultural information. A mitigation plan was not prepared. FR
