Abstract : Field reconnaissance of 30 previously identified sites revealed only three sites worthy of additional investigations. As a result, the contract was modified to incorporate additional sites for field reconnaissance and evaluation. A total of 167 archaeological sites were investigated using: 1) archives and literature review; 2) informant interviews; 3) review of existing collections; 4) traditional pedestrian survey (surface collection); 5) shovel testing; 6) excavated soil pits; and 7) soil coring. A single site, 13 JH 272, is considered eligible for The National Register of Historic Places. The remaining sites have been determined to have been so severely disturbed that no further investigations are recommended.
