can be demonstrated. The site has been under cultivation for over 150 years, and the disturbed condition of level 2 can be attributed to plowing. The flood-deposited sand of level 1 is of quite recent age.

the site is one of several known to exist along the middle parts of the staunton river, and the present excavation adds another shorts chapter to the archeological story gradually being pieced together for the entire Roanoke River basin. The artifacts collected in the current work are in the custody of the junior author, and it is hoped that someday they may be placed in a local museum.

The authors thank the officials of the town of brookneal for permitting this work to be done. We also thank the many members of the Archeological society of virginia who assisted in this work. without their faithful and enthusiastic support, this study could not have been made. We hope that the knowledge, experience and pleasure derived from the work will compensate for the time, effort and perspiration they devoted to it.
