Abstract

Ball State University conducted archaeological investigations at several locations within Mounds State Park in 2006. The investigations were conducted as part of an archaeological field school and archaeology month activities. The purpose of the field school was to train archaeology students in field techniques. The purpose of archaeology month activities was to engage the public in the role of scientific archaeological investigations. The investigations were held at several locations within the park: the Bronnenberg House: the Union Traction Park Pavilion: a historic dump; and Earthworks D, K, G and F. The investigations documented the concentration of important Prehistoric and Historic archaeological resources that are contained within the park.
