James E. Fitting provides an overview of archaeological material from sites in southeastern Michigan. His primary focus is the Riviere au Vase site (also called the Graham site, the Greene School site, and the Mud Creek site), in Macomb County, which was excavated by Emerson Greenman and others in 1936 and 1937. At this Woodland site, the investigators found burials, ceramic and lithic artifacts, and faunal remains. Fitting also writes about the Fuller sites and the Verchave sites.
