Abstract

A hundred years of farming and relic hunting has destroyed much of Iowa's archeological resources. An active program of research is currently underway at the State University of Iowa in order to preserve these prehistoric remains before they are entirely lost. It will require a strenuous effort to salvage enough information to piece together the ten thousand years of Iowa's past. Current research emphasis is upon publishing reports and organizing the results of previous work throughout the state. After this phase of the program is completed a series of excavations will be made in different parts of the state to fill the gaps of the scientific record.
