Summary

Orignally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. NADB-R records consist of a document citation and limited other metadata but do not have the documents themselves uploaded. In 2013, as part of a project done for the US Air Force, digital curators of the Center for Digital Antiquity updated the original record by adding a digital copy of the article described and more detailed metadata.

The article summarizes an archaeological investigation conducted in November and December of 1985. Piper Archaeological Research, Inc. under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, conducted a preliminary archaeological survey of Avon Park Air Force Range (APAFR) in Polk and Highlands Counties, Florida. The purpose of the survey was to provide base level data on the types, distribution, and potential significance of prehistoric and historic period sites located on the Range. Information gathered during the survey was used to generate a preliminary predictive model of prehistoric and historic period site location for use by the Air Force in future planning and management of cultural resources on the Range.
