Our mission: preserve cultural resources
Our environmental mission includes the conservation of cultural and natural resources – as such, Brad Perkl, district archaeologist, conducted an excavation of Corps-owned property in Stoddard, Wisconsin, from Oct. 16 to 18. The excavation was done before a small, soil-disturbing project would begin just feet from the Mississippi River in an area known to have been occupied by indigenous persons more than 1,000 years ago. Perkl was joined by Anthony Levine, who operated the sifter with a keen eye for human-made products. The soil turned up several pieces of ceramic pottery, which Perkl estimates to be 900 to 1,200 years old.
