Abstract

13HA365 is an unplowed "site" overlooking the Iowa River in the Greenbelt of Hardin County. A 1994 University of Northern Iowa field school revealed a Middle Woodland occupation distinguished by zones of dense lithic debris, probably the by-products of discrete knapping events. Primarily biface production can be inferred from the analysis of debris size distribution and patterns of covariation in discrete flake attributes.
