Abstract

During the summer of 1960, 8 burial or storage pits were uncovered at the Leary site 25RH1, Richardson County, Nebraska by a bulldozer of the county highway department. A rush archaeological salvage excavation was conducted. Remains of at least 3 individuals were recovered. Pottery resembles that excavated from the site in 1935 by the Nebraska State Historical Society and is classified as Oneota. A wine bottle of the type manufactured by the William McCully Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania between 1832 and 1890 was recovered from an undisturbed part of a storage pit. It is thought to be intrusive through rodent action.
