Title: Phase I archaeological survey of the proposed timber harvest area along 745th Battalion Road and an adjacent food plot area on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. Final report, November-December 1995

Abstract

In November 1995, the Fort Knox contract archaeology staff conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of a proposed timber harvest area along 745th Battalion Road on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. The proposed timber harvest area is 2.7 km (1.7 miles) long, and 30 to 50 m wide (100-160 feet), encompassing approximately 10.9 ha (26.9 acres). Only selected trees will be harvested. No archaeological sites were recorded in the proposed timber harvest area. However, one archaeological site had been recorded as an accidental discovery near the proposed timber harvest area. Because this site has not been previously described in a report of investigations, it is discussed in this report. Site 15Hd494 is a multi-component (Late Archaic and Early Woodland) camp or special activity site with a possible early nineteenth century historic occupation. The site is considered potentially eligible for the National Register. Since 15Hd494 lies completely outside the proposed timber area, it is recommended that the timber harvest be conducted as proposed. Since 15Hd494 is being damaged by vehicle traffic, it is recommended that the site be posted as off-limits to unauthorized vehicles.
