Abstract

This article reports on the recovery of a prehistoric dugout canoe in Northeast Arkansas. It relates that the dugout was uncovered when floodwaters receded along the western meander of the St. Francis River. Matt Guth, a local outdoorsman, together with his wife and a friend, spotted the dugout on a sandbar in Cross County, Arkansas. It discusses the acquisition of the dugout by the Illinois State Archaeological Society (ISAS) from Guth who realized its importance as an artifact.
