Manager's Report on The Prehistoric and Historic Archaeological Survey of Approximately 300 Acres at Shaw Air Force Base and the Wateree Recreational Area, Sumter and Kershaw Counties, South Carolina
Author(s): Paul P. Kreisa
In September 1996 the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories contracted with the Public Service Archaeology Program of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to undertake the archaeological survey of 300 acres at Shaw Air Force Base and the Wateree Recreation Area, Sumter and Kershaw counties, South Carolina, under DACA88-96-M-0398. The archaeological survey of 300 acres will provide a baseline inventory of historic and prehistoric. Archaeological sites for those areas investigated and complete an archaeological inventory of Shaw Air Force Base. The research design for the archaeological survey proposed herein is in accordance with the Scope of Work and with guidelines established by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The project will be carried out using personnel from the Department of Anthropology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of South Carolina, with Dr. Paul P. Kreisa serving as Principal Investigator.
Selected portions of Shaw Air Force Base and the Wateree Recreation Area were surveyed during October and November 1996, and UTM coordinates of each site located were determined using GPS instrumentation in December 1996. The fieldwork was conducted by a crew from SCIAA while both SCIAA and PSAP personnel determined the UTM coordinates. Information supplied by Dr. Christine Hensley of Shaw Air Force Base defined three survey tracts at Shaw Air Force Base and a single tract at the Wateree Recreation Area. For ease of discussion, the three Shaw Air Force Base tracts have been named the Long Branch tract, the Pinckney Crossing tract, and the Mush Swamp tract. The survey resulted in the location of five previously unidentified archaeological sites and six isolated finds.
