Pocket Eddy Site (23PU165)

The Pocket Eddy Site (23PU165) is situated in the Gasconade River Drainage, a tributary of the Missouri River. It is a multi-component site with surface finds indicating occupation primarily during the Archaic Period. The site is currently in grass and not open to the public.

This webpage illustrates some of the typical stone tools surface collected by an amateur archaeologist from the site during the 1980s.
