3 Mason, Ronald J. And Carol Irwin An Eden-Scottsbluff Burial in Northeastern Wisconsin
Cambridge University Press 1960 Magazing Reprint Hardcover Very Good 
Cambridge University Press, 1960 57 semi-gloss pages with 3 b/w illustrations and one map. Text clean, tight, bright and unmarked. Beige paper cover with brown type shows little wear. A reprint form American Antiquity, Vol. 26, No. 1, July, 1960 from a Neville Public Museum (Wisconsin) report. "n 1959 the Neville Public Museum, Green Bay, Wisconsin, discovered and excavated a cremation burial site near the base of the Door Peninsula in northeastern Wisconsin. Associated with the cremated remains of a human being were fire-cracked rocks, the fire-shattered fragments of large quartzite bifacial implements, and projectile points of Eden and Scottsbluff types. A possible Turin type of side-notched flint projectile point was also in association. The site is on the crest of a fossil beach equatable with the Main Algonquin lake stage of the Green Bay-Lake Michigan basins, thus establishing a maximum possible age for the cultural features. That the artifacts and burial are post-Lake Algonquin by not more than about 2500 years is indicated by typological comparisons of the artifacts with radiocarbon-dated assemblages in the High Plains, usually regarded as the center of the Eden-Scottsbluff complex. An age of 6500 to 4000 B.C. is suggested for the burial.. Magazing Reprint. Stapled Soft Cover. Very Good. 7.25" x 10".
