Pammel Creek – Pottery

Oneota pottery

During the 1980s excavations at the Pammel Creek site (located south of La Crosse, Wisconsin) numerous examples of Oneota pottery were uncovered. Few were as impressive as the Oneota rim sherd pictured here. Once excavated, it was brought back to the lab to be cleaned and reconstructed. It can be viewed, along with other artifacts recovered from local sites, as a part of the displays at the UWL Archaeology Laboratory. Usual building hours are Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The building may be closed on some days when all staff members are in the field. Please check in advance to ensure that the building will be open by calling 608‑785‑8463.
