The Meyers site (23JE14) is situated along a small tributary of the Mississippi River. It was registered with the Archaeological Survey of Missouri by Robert McCormick Adams and Frank Magre during the 1950s.. The site is on private property and not open to the public. Gary K., a resident of Jefferson County, kindly took me to the site, and allowed me to document a few of the diagnostic projectile points he found on the surface of the site.
