Abstract

A faunal analysis on the animal remains recovered from the Schmitt Site shelter was conducted to supplement the formal archeological report by John L. Reese (Proc. Iowa Acad. Sci., 79 (2): 56-58, 1972. Animal remains suggest that the valley in which the site was situated had permanent water, an oak-hickory forest interspersed with meadows, and prairies above the valley on the flatlands. Little if any climatic change has taken place since the occupation of the site. The shelter probably was never occupied permanently, but was used periodically as a camp.
