Doyle is one of the finest examples of Woodland culture in the
Republican River valley of southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas. Work at the
site uncovered a superb example of a Woodland house floor. Artifacts,
particularly pottery vessels, attribute the occupation to the Keith Phase (A.D.
500-1000), the only known Woodland culture in southwest Nebraska. Radiocarbon
dates suggest two separate occupations, the first about A.D. 50 and another
about A.D. 550-600. These dates offer preliminary evidence of Woodland culture
emerging in the Republican basin five centuries earlier than previously thought.
The Doyle Site is listed on the National Historic Register.
