Country: United States
State: Indiana

Coordinate: 38° 43' 4" N, 87° 9' 55" W
Basis of coordinate: based on nearby landmark
Geography comments: "approximately 3 miles north of the city of Washington" according to Tomak (1974) (coordinate based on Prairie Creek Site)
there is "A radiocarbon date of 14, 010 +/- 140 B.P. (DIC-234) on a spruce log" from the underlying Zone D, and the overlying Zone B is asserted to be "4, 140 - 2, 880 B.P." but there are no direct dates
"Zone C consists of vertebrates primarily from Holocene sediments, with inclusions of Late Pleistocene remains scoured from the underlying Zone D deposits"
Climate and habitat
Lithology: not described
Habitat comments: the environment of this zone is not indicated, but it overlies lake deposits and underlies deposits of "a marsh and stream environment"
Life forms: carnivores, rodents, other small mammals, snakes, turtles, frogs
Sampling methods: quarry, screenwash
Sample size: 880
Years: 1974, 1975
Sampling comments: "Materials were recovered by trowling, with all matrix dry screened through 1/4" hardware mesh"
fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and large mammals were to be described elsewhere
