Abstract : In April 1997, Brockington and Associates, Inc. conducted Phase II archaeological testing of 8OK61, Hurlburt Field, Florida to determine its National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) eligibility. To comply with Federal legislation and regulations governing the disposition of cultural resources (National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, Executive Order 11593, and the Archaeological and Historic Preservation Act of 1974), the US Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District (USACE), and the United States Air Force, Hurlburt Field sponsored the Phase II testing of 80K6 1. A Florida site form and subsequent update forms indicate that 8OK61 was originally identified and recorded by Florida State University in the 1 960s; information regarding this visit is not available. Additional information on 80K6 1 was recorded during the survey of Eglin Air Force Base by New World Research, Inc. in 1982. At that time, ceramic sherds and shell were noted eroding out of the bank overlooking Santa Rosa Sound. Prior to Phase II testing, little information was available on the site. The Phase II testing of 8OK6 1 included background research, shovel test excavations, and test unit excavations (n=3). During the shovel testing, 50 by 50 cm/1 .6 by 1.6 ft shovel tests were excavated across the site (within the hurlburt Field property boundary) at 15 rn/SO ft intervals. Based on the results of these shovel tests, three test units were excavated to assess the integrity of deposits. A site map was prepared to document the locations of all excavations, cultural and natural features, and approximate contours. Due to the presence of intact deposits capable of addressing research questions considered important to the region, 80K61 is recommended eligible for the NRHP. It is recommended that 80K61 be protected from ground disturbing activities.
