Abstract : The Corps of Engineers has proposed the construction of a wall and levee flood control system in the city of Lock Haven, PA. In conjunction with this project, the Woodward Group has employed The Pennsylvania State University to conduct a Phase I archaeological reconnaissance. As outlined in "Scope of Work, Cultural Resources Reconnaissance," issued by the Baltimore District, Corps of Engineers, the goals of a Phase I archaeological reconnaissance are (1) to accumulate sufficient data concerning the prehistoric resources located within the reconnaissance zone to make predictive generalizations concerning the nature of undiscovered archaeological sites in that zone, (2) to test these predictive statements through a limited archaeological reconnaissance of the study area, (3) to assess the archaeological significance of all sites discovered and/or investigated during the reconnaissance, and (4) to suggest methods and costs for future, more intensive archaeological research in the study area. An archaeological research project complying with these specifications was directed by the authors during September, 1978. (MM)
