Special Publications in Archaeology Series
Special Publications in Archaeology is an online series of reports
designed to provide information on South Dakota archaeology to the public. All
the reports are available as pdf (portable document format) files. To read them,
you will need a pdf viewer such as Adobe's Acrobat Reader. With the reader, you can view, download,
or print the file. The printed version of the pdf file is how the report would
appear if published as a hardcopy report series. Pdf files can be large, so
a high-speed internet connection is recommended.
Some of the reports may also be available as zipped web page archives. To
unpack a zip file, you need a program such as WinZip or
PkZIP. Those reports which are available as zipped archives are also
available for online viewing.
