Restricted Reconnaissance: The History and Archaeology of S. M. Wheeler in Nye County, Nevada reconstructs the archaeological career and life of one of Nevada's first archaeologists. Specifically, during the months of February and May of 1940, Wheeler worked in Nye County, Nevada. He conducted survey and collections from 12 archaeological sites which are now within the environs of the Nevada Test Site. The field notes and collections from this fieldwork were analyzed by the author in 1995. In addition, the author revisited the archaeological sites and analyzed the artifact assemblages collected by Wheeler. The results of the analysis and fieldwork will be presented in this thesis.
