The Woodland Indians of Wisconsin were typically hunters and gatherers living in semipermanent villages. They occupied regions of Wisconsin from about 500 B.C. to A.D. 1300. Northern Wisconsin is home to mainly Middle to Late Woodland sites and there is one particular site that is the focus of this paper. This paper is a detailed analysis of a tribal site which is numbered LDF-030D (State ID 47Vi257) (Sand Beach/Trading Post Site). It is located on Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Vilas County, Wisconsin. Previous excavations within the last decade have concluded that this site was a general area that was used for tool making and maintenance. However, a 1995 report of LDF- 030D concludes that the collection of this site consists of mainly lithics and ceramics and it is my understanding that a use for ceramics were for domestic activities. By further analyzing and exploring the contents of this site it is possible to determine what domestic activities were taking place and the season(s) in which they were conducted.
