During spring 2014, personnel from the American Bottom Field Station of ISAS completed archaeological investigations in Lebanon, Illinois prior to a proposed new roadway project for the Illinois Department of Transportation. This work resulted in the identification of the town's first homestead, which was established by a native of Georgia named Gilles Maddeaux by 1807. Investiga-tive techniques included pedestrian survey, metal detecting, and magnetometry, leading to the delineation of this early nineteenth century occupation.
