Abstract:

The Souris River Basin Project is a flood control program protecting both urban and rural reaches of the Souris River in North Dakota. The portion of the project to be inspected by this survey covers mitigation of project related impacts to rural farmsteads upstream and downstream of Lake Darling. This contract deals with archaeological survey only of fourteen farmsteads in Renville, Ward and McHenry countries within North Dakota. As a result of the study, one prehistoric isolated find was recorded. The prehistoric site consists of an unspecified Late Prehistoric cultural material scatter located on arise above a meader of an old channel of the Souris River within the town of Sawyer. The isolated find consists of a Besant type projectile point of the Late Archaic or Middle Prehistoric period. As an isolated artifact, this find is not significant.
