Abstract : In April-June 1996, Fort Knox contract archaeologists conducted a Phase I survey of 33.7 ha (83.3 acres) and reexamined 14.0 ha (34.6 acres) in Rehabilitation Area 7, Fort Knox, Meade County, Kentucky. In or near Rehab Area 7, the survey recorded 15Md383-15Md386 and revisited 15Md178-15Md180, 15Hd184, and 15Md362. Rehab Areas 6 and 8 were previously surveyed. Site 15Md382 was recorded in or near Rehab Area 6. No sites were recorded in Rehab Area 8. Sites 15Md178- 15Md180, 15Md362, 15Md382, 15Md383, 15Md385, and 15Md386 have indeterminate pre- historic components. Sites 15Md362 and 15Md386 also have ca. 1800-1925 historic components. Sites 15Md184 and 15Md384 are ca. 1850-1940 historic sites. No evidence was found of 15Md178-l5MdlSO, presumed to be destroyed. Sites 15Md362 and 15Md382-15Md385 are not eligible for the National Register. The rehab portion of 15Md386 is heavily disturbed, but the wooded portion contains intact deposits potentially eligible for the National Register. Site 15Md184 has intact cultural deposits, is potentially eligible for the National Register, and is outside any rehab area. If wooded areas of 15Md3S6 are avoided, rehab activities will not affect National Register eligible resources. No further study is recommended for the sites in conjunction with this project, but study is needed of 15Md184 and 15Md386 if future earthmoving activities will affect them.
