dc.description.abstractOn the Ozark Plateau, human occupation spanning the last 11,500 14C yr B.P. is well documented in the archaeological record. Recently, geoarchaeological investigations have been conducted in the reach of the Current River valley contained within Ozark National Scenic Riverways (NSR). The current study was conducted in an effort to establish a geoarchaeological model for Ozark NSR. Alluvial stratigraphy, particle-size distribution data, and optically stimulated luminescence ages were used to investigate late-Quaternary landscape evolution and model the geologic preservation potential for cultural deposits. Stable carbon isotope data were used to reconstruct paleoenvironmental change during the late Pleistocene and Holocene.
