Report on mitigation during which 5 archaeological strata were encountered. A total of 1375 artifacts were recovered, representing the following categories: lithic; ceramic; faunal and floral remains. Occupation is associated with Plains Woodland ceramic cultures during the Late Woodland period, and the date is estimated at ca. AD 1550±200. Stratigraphy is discussed in detail. Appendices include an artifact catalogue.

Note that after reconstruction, some vessels were re-identified as Avonlea (ca. AD 300-700), see Speidel, Paul, 1996.
