Abstract : The investigations focused on: (1) the nature of prehistoric settlement systems of the Pomme de Terre river valley; (2) the relationship of the Pomme de Terre river valley to the remainder of the lake area and to western Missouri in general; and (3) the study of how human communities used their natural environment, how they dispersed themselves and their activities across the landscape and located where they did, how prehistoric people extracted energy from the natural environment, and why these patterns change.
