Abstract

The Oneota, or Upper Iowa, a small river about eighty miles in length, flows through Winneshiek and Allamakee Counties in Iowa, close to their northern border, which is also the line between this state and Minnesota. It flows through a beautiful, winding valley, which has a width of half a mile, and is bounded by precipitous bluffs. The glacial terraces which extend up this valley for forty miles to Decorah have afforded very abundant evidences of a former considerable Indian population. Earth embankments, mounds, and camp sites have yielded up a treasure of implements, weapons and ornaments. Notable among these are the large number of small earthen vessels found in burial places and the fewer larger ones which seem to have been buried by themselves.
