Abstract : Test excavations were conducted to better describe cultural materials eroding from a cutbank on the east shore of Lake Oahe, to provide chronological control for these materials, to determine their potential extent into intact deposits landward from the cutbank, and to provide recommendations for treatment of the site. The continually eroding site should be stabilized. (AN)
