During 2013, the Illinois State Archaeological Survey conducted survey and limited test excavations at Buckman Flats (11 KX271), an Historic Indian site along the Spoon River of western Illinois. A substantial metal assemblage was recovered, including gun parts, ammunition, projectile points, jewelry, clothing ornaments, and scrap pieces, as well as a smaller number of stone and glass artifacts. Relying primarily on archival information, we suggest the site is likely affiliated with the Potawatomi and dates to the 1820s.
