Burghduff

Burghduff Location

The Burghduff site was first discovered in 2005 and contains Paleoindian deposits left by the Cody complex—the same cultural groups that created the Hudson-Meng site.  Based on the point styles recovered at Burghduff, the Cody component here should date between 10,700-11,000 years old.  Excavation at Burghduff in 2008 identified the likely presence of a cultural level below the Cody complex
that could be associated with either Folsom or Clovis groups that are much older.  Research at Burghduff has only been possible by the tireless efforts of volunteers from the South Dakota Archaeological Society, the South Dakota Archaeological Research Center, and SCSU students.
