Honey Creek Area 1978
The USACE, Louisville District obtained the Honey Creek, 1978 collection through an intensive systematic subsurface investigation to determine the presence of buried archaeological sites. The report, entitled Intensive Subsurface Proposal Survey for Buried Cultural Resources at the American Electric Power Generating Facility Rockport, Indiana; June 1978, detailed the machine assisted auguring of bore holes and their subsequent inspection for cultural indicators. This report documents multiple sites noted during the subsurface investigation, but artifacts are only present from sites 12SP284 and 12SP305. The principal investigators for this investigation were John Dorwin & David Sonner (Wapora, Inc. N.D.). The sites are identified using the conventional trinomial system; the county symbol employed is SP, which represents Spencer County.
