Abstract : In May 1995, the Fort Knox Contract Staff Archaeologist conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of proposed timber harvest areas in a power line easement adjoining Longstreet Range Road on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. The powerline easement to be harvested is approximately 30 m (100 feet) wide and 4.4 km (4400 m or 14,436 ft) long, encompassing approximately 13 ha (33 acres). Of this, approximately 8 ha (21 acres) was wooded and comprised the area walked in the present survey. Only selected trees, which were marked by Forestry Section personnel prior to the archaeological survey, will be harvested. The survey resulted in the discovery of no archaeological materials or deposits. It is recommended that the timber harvest be conducted as proposed.
