Abstract : In March 1994 the Fort Knox Staff Archeologist and Assistant Staff Archeologist conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of two proposed borrow areas to be used for berm repair on the Yano Range on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Bullitt County, Kentucky. Site 15Bu524 has Early Archaic, Late Archaic/Early Woodland, and Middle Woodland components. It is not eligible for the National Register and no additional archeological work is recommended for it. Site 15Bu525 is a lithic scatter of indeterminate prehistoric cultural affiliation. Site 15Bu526 has Early Archaic and Late Archaic coomponents. Site 15Bu527 has a Late Archaic/Early Woodland component. Portions of the sites have already been destroyed, but sizeable areas of 15Bu525-15Bu527 remain intact. 15Bu525-15Bu527 are considered potentially eligible for the National Register. If the installation proposes to expand the borrow pits into 15Bu525-15Bu527, these sites should be tested prior to earthmoving activities.
