The Unknown Cahokia Collections (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: The Unknown Cahokia Collections
Author: Laura Kozuch
Author: Stephanie Daniels
Author: Mike Lewis
Abstract: Due to decades of neglect and obscurity, Cahokia collections at the University of Illinois dating back to the 1920s made by Warren K. Moorehead and others have gone largely unknown. They include a collection from the Powell Mound destruction in 1930-31 by A.R. Kelly, and 450 boxes from CRM projects between 1959 and 1991, by Charles J. Bareis. Collections are from most areas at the Cahokia site. With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the catalog and some photographs are on-line. Descriptions of each excavation project, and descriptions of archived documents are available in Adobe Acrobat files.
