Abstract

The Hoxie Farm site is located along Thorn Creek in the south suburban Chicago area. The site is large and multicomponent and primarily associate with Upper Mississippian late Fisher and early Huber phases. The Main Occupation Area (MOA) contains the site's densest concentration of features and material (a previous volume, Research Report #27 The Hoxie Farm Site Fortified Village: Late Fisher Phase Occupation and Fortification in South Chicago, Second Edition detailed the Fortified Village results). Excavations in within the MOA found artifact-rich midden deposits and 1,509 prehistoric features. Notably, the MOA excavations produced the largest collection of copper-base metal artifacts (270) from any Native American site reported in the Chicago area.
