THE DAWSON SITE (MY-140): AN ARCHAIC WORKSHOP IN NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA. HIGHWAY ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY PAPER NO. 5

The Dawson site, My-140, was excavated during a five week period in May and June, 1977, by the Oklahoma Highway Archaeological Survey. The excavation was deemed necessary since the proposed alignment of the Lindsey-Mayes Bridge Project would endanger the site. The Dawson site was the first single component Archaic workshop to be found in northeastern Oklahoma. The cultural remains were analyzed in the framework of a lithic reduction trajectory to more fully determine the nature of the activities at the site. The primary utilization of My-140 probably occurred about 4000 B.P. The Dawson site may have repeatedly served as a lithic collection and reduction station during the Middle to Late Archaic periods.
