Phase II Archaeological Investigations of Eight Sites at the Poinsett Electronic Combat Range, Sumter County, South Carolina

Summary

This Phase II archaeological study dealt with eight sites (38SU155, 38SU192, 38SU199, 38SU233, 38SU290, 38SU292, 38SU293) at the Poinsett Electronic Combat Range (PECR) of Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter County, South Carolina. The sites include one historic dwelling (38SU155) and seven prehistoric camps located in the vicinity of Big Bay. Phase II investigations at each site included systematic shovel testing followed by test unit excavations to delineate site dimensions and artifact distributions, identify features and site stratigraphy, and assess the content and integrity of each site. As a result of these Phase II investigations, recommendations were made concerning each site’s National register of Historic Places (NRHP) eligibility.
