In the fall of 2010 the Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS) completed a small-scale archaeological testing project adjacent to 1st Street in the heart of the eighteenth century French Village of Cahokia. All work was carried out prior to a proposed road improvement project for the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). Investigations resulted in the discovery of an eighteenth century poteauxsur-sole domicile situated on a lot owned by Francois Trotier ca. 1770. This paper will provide a brief historic background, results of analysis, and an overall interpretation of the site in the context of French Cahokia.
