This is one of three volumes reporting the results of a Cultural Resources Survey of the Smithville Lake Project. Volume 1 deals with archeological resources of the lake. It presents the results of an archeological survey performed in 1976 and interprets the prehistoric settlement of the area by using 1967 and 1975 survey data as well as the new data reported in this volume. Also reported are the results of the excavation of three sites 23CL109, a multi-component Archalc, Woodland and Steed-Kisker site 25CL199, a late Kansas City Hopewell site and 23CL108, a Steed-Kisker burial mound.
