Marshall McKusick's monograph, The Grant Oneota Village, reports the results of excavations at the Grant Village site (13AM201). Grant Village is a multicomponent site located on the Hartley Terrace of the Upper Iowa River, Allamakee County, Iowa. The main focus of the report is the description and interpretation of house remains found on the terrace. The site is a very important one for Oneota specialists as it offers the possibility of much new information on house form and community patterning. Other topics covered include a discussion of Oneota taxonomy, a cultural chronology of the Hartley Terrace, and ethnohistotic parallels for the excavated houses. Descriptive sections covering bone, stone, and ceramic artifacts are also included. The monograph follows Current Anthropology with commentary and author's reply sections.
