Excerpt from the report
This report describes a magnetic survey
conducted at the Walth Bay site (39WW203), adjacent to the Oahe Reservoir
near Mobridge, South Dakota.
The purpose of this project is to evaluate magnetic surveying as a useful
detection technique on sites of the Plains Village Tradition in the
Middle Missouri subarea (Lehmer 1971). This survey method is not widely
used in the United States. Consequently, this report will dwell
extensively on the theory and method of magnetic surveying as well as
present the results and a critique of the results of the entire project....
