Abstract:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St Paul District proposes to establish a flood control project for the urban and rural reaches of the Souris River Valley in North Dakota. The overall project involves flood control features in both the United States and Saskatchewan, Canada. In May and June 1988, a Class III cultural resources inventory of the upper seven miles of the Souris River Valley in the United States. Thirty-nine cultural resource sites were discovered, recorded and evaluated. Nineteen of the sites are prehistoric sites which may be eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, but further test excavations are needed to determine their significance. One historic site contains a stone ice house which is considered eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C 1, as it embodies the distinctive characteristics of a method of construction. All other recorded sites are recommended not eligible for nomination to the National Register. Archaeology. edc
