Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Elaine Bluhm and David Wenner conducted volunteer salvage excavations at the important Upper Mississippian Hoxie Farm site in 1953 and, although limited, represented an important contribution to Chicago area archaeology. The Illinois State Archaeological Survey conducted extensive excavations at the site from 2000 to 2003 for an Interstate 80 corridor expansion project. The ISAS work revealed a 14th-century, fortified community packed with structures dating to the late Fisher phase and a separate area of intense Late Fisher and early Huber phase occupations. This paper will present a summary of the ISAS results.
