Abstract : This report describes the results of Phase III mitigation (geomorphological study and archaeological excavation) at the multicomponent pre-historic Woodland Persimmon archaeological site (11-C-152), located partially within the proposed Pump Station #3 construction corridor, Swan Lake Habitat Rehabilitation Enhancement Project (HREP). The Swan Lake HREP is located in Navigation Pool 26, Illinois River (mile 5.0 to 13.0 along the right WEST bank), Calhoun County, IL. Persimmon site was most intensively occupied by Early Woodland Black Sand cultural groups (Cypress and Schultz phases), followed by lesser Middle and Late Woodland occupations. Persimmon site represents numerous short term reoccupations and subsequently buried by the accreting Illinois River levee. Cultural resources clearance for the pump station project is recommend. Fieldwork was conducted in April, 1995, by American Resources Group, Ltd, Carbondale, IL for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District on lands managed for waterfowl by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The HREP project is planned under the Environmental Management Program (EMP) established to enhance and rehabilitate the Upper Mississippi River system.
