Abstract : In February 1994, the Fort Knox Assistant Staff Archeologist conducted a Phase I archeological survey of the area within and around a proposed sports complex, approximately 28.2 ha (69.7 acres) in size, on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. A literature review of the historic settlement in this area was completed prior to the fieldwork and was incorporated in the research plan. Field observation during the current study revealed that most of the area had been altered by military construction and earthmoving, and the undisturbed areas contained no historic or prehistoric cultural materials. The survey resulted in the discovery of no archeological materials or deposits. It is recommended that the sports complex area be developed as proposed.
