Lithic analysis of Cade 3 (47Ve630) in Vernon County, Wisconsin
MetadataShow full item record
Cade 3 is one of several archaeological sites located within the Cade National Register Archaeological District, located in the Bad Axe River Valley in Vernon County, Wisconsin. This site was partially excavated in the summers of 2004 and 2007 by the UW-La Crosse field methods course in Archaeology. The focus of this paper is the description of the excavation and recovered lithic materials from Cade 3 in 2007. Projectile points were the most common diagnostic archaeological material found during the excavation. Lithic analysis includes raw material sourcing, heat treated material, and temporal range. The surface collections of projectile points from the surrounding sites are used to increase the sample size and regional perspective. The projectile points from Cade 3 and nearby surface collections (Cade 1 and Cade 2) were compared to those recovered from Cade 9 (47Ve625). The results revealed that there is evidence that this site was occupied during Middle-Late Archaic and Late Woodland period.
