Abstract : In April-June 1996, Fort Knox contract archaeologists conducted a Phase I survey of 95.6 ha (236.3 acres) and reexamined 50.0 ha (123.5 acres) in Rehabilitation Areas 1-5 and 9-11, Training Areas 8, 9, and 10, Fort Knox, Meade County, Kentucky. Twenty-one sites (15Md387-15Md407) and eight isolates were recorded and 15Md190, 15Md196, 15Md198, 15Md217, 15Md218, 15Md221, 15Md222, 15Md231, and 15Md237 were revisited. Sites 15Md190, 15Md198, 15Md217, 15Md218, 15Md3S7- 15Md391, 15Md393-15Md396, 15Md398-l5Md4Ol, and 15Md403-15Md407 and the isolated finds are not eligible for the National Register. No additional study is recommended for these 22 sites or the isolates. Sites 15Md196, 15Md221, 15Md222, 15Md231, 15Md237, 15Md392, 15Md397, and 15Md402 are potentially eligible for the National Register. Further research and/or protection measures are recommended at these eight sites. Sites 15Md188 and 15Md189 were not relocated in the tank trail to be rehabbed. Sites 15Md199, 15Md216, and 15Md220 were not inspected because they were inaccessible and will not be subjected to earthmoving in the current project. No archaeological work is recommended at 15Md188, l5Md189, 15Md199, 15Md216, and 15Md220, in conjunction with the rehab project, but is recommended if future undertakings will affect vegetated areas adjoining the tank.
