The Mitchell Initiative: Archaeological Investigations in the Greater Mitchell Mounds Region of the American Bottom

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS) recently began conducting archaeological investigations adjacent to the I-270 corridor in Madi- son County, Illinois as part of a proposed Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) road improvement project. In relation, ISAS personnel also completed research based surveys of nearby properties in order to glean new information on the Mitchell site, a poorly understood Mississip- pian Mound Complex. Through cooperation with private landowners and local farmers, this has included a combination of pedestrian survey, geophysical survey, and geomorphological investigations to identify the original extent of the site and what now remains.
