Oneota Vessel – Meier Farm

Oneota vessel A broken Oneota vessel fills a small pit-type feature uncovered during the 2002 excavations at the Meier Farm site (47LC432), near Onalaska, Wisconsin. This site was part of the Sand Lake site complex, where tens of acres of ridged agricultural fields were created in the moist soils of a trapped floodplain. Meier farm was one of the habitation areas associated with those fields. Most of the Sand Lake complex has since been obliterated by development.
