2018 fieldwork conducted by the Illinois State Archaeological Survey on behalf of IDOT, along with reanalysis of curated materials collected by Greg Perino in 1961-1962 add important new data regarding Early Archaic lifeways along the central Illinois River. Perino’s salvage work recovered the earliest known domestic dog burial in North America, human remains, and a diverse assemblage of faunal and chipped stone tools and debris. Fieldwork conducted by ISAS confirmed the context of the deposits in which Perino worked, and encountered a deeply buried and dense habitation strata rich in diverse fauna and chipped stone and bone tools.
