Abstract : These sites have been employed to characterize the archeological resource base within the project area. Analysis of present and future land use, based upon past and predicted clearance of forested land within the project area, permits assessments of the nature and extent of impacts to the archeological resource base from project induced land clearance. Site distributions among the geomorphological strata have been predicted based on a general model of prehistoric use of the the alluvial floodplain. The predicted and observed distributions permit discussions of man-land relationships within the project area. Previously recorded site locations were used to permit further assessments of these predicted relationships. Keywords: Prehistoric and historic archeology; Sampling.
