Abstract : This report is the result of a survey level cultural resources investigation of Big Bay Ditch No. 1 channel enlargement in Craighead Co., AR. The intensive on-the-ground survey was conducted by the Environmental Resources Section of the US Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis District, during Feb. 1978. Nine previously unrecorded sites were located during the survey, however, only eight of these are located within the right-of-way for Big Bay Ditch. Based on cultural material recovered during the survey, no further work is warranted on any of the sites. None of these were determined to be eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
