Abstract : Between November 1993 and May 1995, the Fort Knox contract cultural resource management personnel conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of approximately 126 acres (51 ha) encompassing the proposed Kentucky National Guard MATES facility, secondary access road, and adjoining land on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. The survey resulted in the discovery of no archaeological materials or deposits in the proposed MATES facility or secondary access road tracts, but one site, 15Hd496, approximately 1.2 km north of the proposed MATES facility. Site 15Hd496 is a late nineteenth to early twentieth century historic farmstead with a prehistoric isolate. It is recommended that 15Hd496 is not eligible for the National Register. It is recommended that no additional archaeological work is required in the survey areas described in this report. It is recommended that the MATES facility and secondary access road be constructed as proposed.
