Abstract

This paper examines patterns of upland Early Archaic Theban landform and chert use in western Illinois, focusing upon the exploitation of local bedrock and residual sources. The remains from several recent IDOT-sponsored site excavations in Henderson, McDonough, and Warren counties are highlighted inthis paper, providing important tool manufacturing and discard data. These data are compared to Twin Ditch, the only obvious Theban floodplain residence or base camp documented from the region to date.
