The Archeology of Carcajou Point
With an Interpretation of the Development of Oneota Culture in Wisconsin
Robert L. Hall

This book is an examination of an archeological excavation in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, and an evaluation and comparison of the find as related to similar discoveries and the Indian history of the central United States. But more than that it presents a new interpretation of the Oneota cultural tradition and forces a realignment of current views on Wisconsin prehistory. The high point is an exceptionally fine analysis of the ceramic material found, knowledge of which is essential to any student of the late time horizons in Wisconsin and surrounding states.


Robert L. Hall was, at the time of publication, associated with the Illinois State Museum as principal investigator in a study of archeological and ethnohistorical information from Starved Rock, presumed location of La Salle's Fort St. Louis (1683-1693) on the Illinois River.
