Abstract : A Phase I archaeological study was conducted of two areas, totalling 121 ha (299 acres), scheduled for rehabilitation on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Meade county, Kentucky. The survey, conducted from April-August 1994, recorded 30 sites (15Md347-15Md376), and 10 prehistoric isolated finds. The sites include Early Archaic through Middle Woodland components, plus prehistoric sites of indeterminate affiliation, and mid nineteenth to mid twentieth century historic sites. Sites 15Md347, 15Md348, 15Md350, 15Md352-15Md374, 15Md376, and the isolated finds are not eligible for the National Register. No additional archaeological investigations are recommended for these sites and isolated finds. Sites 15Md349 (Late Archaic), 15Md351 (Late Archaic), and 15Md375 (Early Archaic and Middle Woodland) are open habitation sites. They are considered potentially eligible for the National Register, because of the possibility of intact cultural deposits and/or the possibility of identifiable activity areas on the site surface. Additional archaeological investigations are recommended for 15Md349, 15Md351, and 15Md375. These investigations should be integrated into and coordinated with the rehab activities.
