Archaeological Survey, Proposed Minehound Lanes, Fort A.P. Hill (AP2012.001)
The Fort A.P. Hill Cultural Resource Manager, under the Environmental and Natural Resources Division of the Directorate of Public Works within Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia, has completed Phase I archaeological survey in association with the construction of a Minehound Improvised Explosive Device Detection Site at Fort A.P. Hill, Caroline County, Virginia. The project consists of the construction of 12 1.5x36.5-meter (5x120-foot) training lanes spaced 6 meters (20 feet) apart. Each lane will include a 1x1x1-meter (40x40x40-inch) calibration area filled with sterile aggregate and a 1.5x32.3-meter (5x106-foot) trench filled with matching aggregate and training targets. The area of potential effect for the undertaking includes 0.5 hectares (1.3 acres) of land at Jackson Camp.
The objective of the archaeological survey was to identify any historic properties that may be located within the APE and evaluate the potential eligibility of any such resources for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. No artifacts, archaeological sites, intact cultural features, or intact cultural deposits were identified in the APE during the survey.
