Abstract : In October-November 1993, a Phase I survey of 133.6 ha (330.2 acres) in 11 scheduled rehabilitation areas on Fort Knox, Hardin and Meade Counties, Kentucky, revisited 15Md143, 15Md154, 15Md163, and 15Md175, and recorded 15Hd482-15Hd487, 15Md336-15Md342, and five isolated finds (IFs). 15Hd17 could not be relocated. Cemetery #37 lies partially in one project area. Cemeteries usually are not eligible for the National Register, but must be protected under KRS 72.020. 15Hd482-15Hd485, 15Md175, 15Md338, and 15Md340 are lithic scatters (15Md340, Middle Archaic; the rest, indeterminate). 15Hd487, 15Md143, 15Md154, 15Md163, 15Md336, 15Md341, and 15Hd342 have prehistoric (15Md336, Middle Archaic; the rest, indeterminate) and historic (15Hd342, mid nineteenth-early twentieth century; the rest, late nineteenth-early twentieth century) components. 15Hd337 is a late nineteenth-early twentieth century farmstead. 15Hd482-15Hd485, 15Md143, 15Md154, 15Md163, 15Md175, 15Md336-15Md338, 15Md340-15Md342, and the IFs are not eligible for the National Register, and no additional investigations are recommended. 15Hd486, an Early-Middle and Late Archaic open habitation site, is potentially eligible for the National Register, and combined Phase III/III testing and mitigation is recommended. 15Md339 is of indeterminate pre-historic affiliation, and is mostly buried. It is potentially eligible for the National Register, and deep testing is recommended.
