Abstract:

The purpose of the survey was to delineate geomorphic surfaces within the valley margins of Pool 7 on the Upper Mississippi River. These landforms have been mapped and their potential for prehistoric cultural resources has been addressed. Discussed in the report are areas of relatively high and relatively low archaeological potential and the potential for site burial by Holocene and historical alluvium. As a result of lock and dam construction, the lower reaches of the Pool which contain the Mississippi River Holocene floodplain deposits are inundated. In fact, a large proportion of Holocene surfaces within the valley have been inundated due to lock and dam impoundment. Keywords Geomorphology Archaeology.
