Abstract: The Smith's Fork (23CL223) archaeological site, located in Clay County, Missouri was investigated using pedestrian survey, ground penetrating radar, shovel testing, archaeological excavations and a geologic study of river terraces. Used in concert and compiled in a Geographic Information Systems (GIS), these techniques help to delimit the location and use of prehistoric archaeological settlement patterns that favored river terrace and flood plain locations along the Missouri River Valley system, such as Steed-Kisker phase agricultural communities, to time- and cost-effectively characterize deposits buried in these locations.
