The recent discovery of several sites, in proximity to the Missouri River on the east and also to the west of the river, demonstrates an Early Woodland presence of significance between 500 B.C. and A.D. 1. Sites, as far west as the Flint Hills of Kansas, previously identified as Late Archaic, may also be a part of this presence. A search for sites with cordmarked pottery, overlain with textured designs, and triangular-bladed corner-notched projectile points will likely identify many additional examples of this earliest Woodland interaction on the Plains.
