18. Archeological Investigation at the Vaughn Site
(33CU65) Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area.
Zalesky, James M.
Archeological testing was conducted at Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation
Area in November 1983 in conjunction with a proposed sewage leachfield near
park headquarters. A multi-component Archaic to late Woodland
archeological site (33CU65) was located in the proposed construction area.
Despite disturbance from recent historic land use practices, the site
exhibits considerable contextural integrity. Subsurface testing exposed 10
distinct prehistoric features and an extensive midden deposit. Lithic and
ceramic artifacts and floral and faunal remains were also recovered. The
site's material culture, age and significance are discussed in this report,
and recommendations for site management are outlined.
