Abstract : Cultural resources investigations were conducted on Grand Terre Island, Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. Primary source documents including historic maps, aerial photographs, historic accounts, photographic collections were examined in order to identify areas where cultural resources were likely to be preserved within the study area, which encompassed 181 acres. A systematic program of shovel testing, augering, probing, magnetometer survey, metal detector survey, and canal wire drag was then undertaken in high probability areas. No new sites were identified as a result of this effort. In addition, three previously-recorded sites, 16JE127, 16JE128, and 16JE129, were investigated. Site boundaries were determined, in situ cultural deposits were identified, and areas of disturbance were delineated. 16JE127 is recommended as being ineligible for nomination to the NRHP. Both 16JE128 and 16JE129 are recommended as being eligible for NRIIP nomination. (MM)
