Following negotiation of a contract (dated 2 Jul 80) between the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Michigan History Division, Michigan Department of State, and Western Michigan University, authorizing archaeological investigation of the M-66 right-of-way between the Villages of Six Lakes and Remus, Michigan, a team of archaeologists from the Department of Anthropology undertook both on-site examination of the project area and a thorough literature/ documents search in order to determine whether road improvement activities would adversely impact significant cultural resources. There follows a report of our research program, together with a series of recommendations based upon our findings.

It should be understood that the opinions, findings and conclusions expressed in this publication are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Department of State, Michigan History Division, or the Michigan State Transportation Commission.
