Otstungo (NYSM-1156)


Otstungo is a Late Woodland site located on a sheer bluff overlooking Otstungo Creek in the town of Minden, 6 km south of the Mohawk River. It was first occupied about A.D. 1450 and abandoned by 1525 (Snow 1995:115). Six AMS radiocarbon dates were obtained from maize samples associated with midden deposits inside the longhouse excavated by Dean Snow and his team in the mid-1980s (Snow 1995:138, Table 3.21).
