removed from 39CO9, the Leavenworth site, in Corson County, SD, under 
the direction of William Bass. After the excavations, Bass transferred

and seeds), six lots of ceramics, seven lots of fauna (animal bones and 
hide), 33 lots of glass that include beads, two lots of lithics, 17 
lots of metal items, and six lots of minerals.
    The Leavenworth site dates to circa A.D. 1800 to 1832. It comprises

Reservation, North Dakota supports the definition of these objects as 
unassociated funerary objects. Bass did not collect the related human 
remains due to their fragmentary nature, but he did assign a burial 
number to the objects.

Determinations Made by the University of Tennessee, Department of 
Anthropology and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District

Anthropology and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District have

of the death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of 
the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a 
Native American individual.

shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the
