Abstract : This cultural resources survey consisted of a Phase I, 15 percent, stratified, random sample of 314 farmsteads which may have ring levees constructed around their perimeters. A pedestrian reconnaissance was conducted with shovel testing where necessary, and literature and records searches were undertaken. field reconnaissance resulted in recording 12 new sites and one significant site lead. The sites contain six prehistoric and seven historic components. Evidence suggests the project area has been used extensively by prehistoric and historic peoples. These cultural resources may potentially yield significant information which may help elucidate the culture history of the region. (Author)
