Abstract : In March 1996, the Fort Knox contract archaeology staff conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of the areas designated for improvement and expansion of the facilities at the Mendick Range on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. The project areas consisted of the Mendick Tollgate range, a cleared area 1600 feet square (58.8 acres 23.8 ha) that had been used as a small arms range, and a wooded area to the north that was 18.3 ha or 45.2 acres in size. Both areas were walked in their entirety and evaluated for potential cultural resources. No archaeological sites were found in this study. It is recommended that the improvement and expansion be conducted as proposed.
