In August of 2009, human remains were inadvertently disturbed during construction work associated with USH 151 in Calumetville, Wisconsin. One adult was present in partially disturbed contexts beneath the existing pavement of USH 151. An additional burial was encountered during subsequent archaeological monitoring. Data suggest the two burials are located within or near the domestic portion of what was a substantial village. This paper presents the analysis of both burials and compares the context from which each burial was recovered. It is argued that two very different disposal practices are represented at this Developmental Horizon Oneota component ca. A.D. 1200-1300.
