Abstract

In an effort to make archaeological knowledge of Loess Hills prehistory more comprehensive, a three stage archaeological research design is outlined. It involves: (1) obtaining an unbiased sample of archaeological sites through probabilistic survey; (2) evaluating sites identified in terms of function, age and cultural affiliation; and (3) examining selected sites with specific problem-oriented research in mind. The research goal is to test the proposition that there were unique, prehistoric Loess Hills adaptations among groups who utilized the region.
