 Site 25LC12


During the period May 18 - 29, 2009, Highway Archeologists Amy Koch and John Ludwickson supervised the excavation of twenty tests at site 25LC12. Professor Luann Wandsnider's University of Nebraska archeological field school students conducted the excavations as part of their training. The site will be damaged when Interstate 80 is widened to six lanes just north of Lincoln. Testing was to determine the need for additional research. The results of the testing were disappointing, revealing that the site contains a very low density and variety of archeological materials: pottery crumbs, flaking debris, and cracked cobbles.
