An Archaeological and Historical Survey of Fort Lee, Prince George County, Virginia: Final Report and Appendices

Summary

An archaeological inventory was conducted by MAAR Associates. Inc. at Fort Lee, Prince George County. Virginia. This study resulted in the identification of 99 prehistoric and historic sites. A total of 3609 acres was examined constituting a 66.7 percent sample of the facility including all area undisturbed by recent military activity. Initial projections of the resource base were largely confirmed, and the use of an environmentally-based sampling strategy was found to be justified. This investigation constituted the completion of archaeological inventory requirements at Fort Lee, and a recommendation to complete an evaluation program was presented. It was also recommended that Fort Lee develop a formal Historic Preservation Plan in conjunction with criteria stipulated by a Memorandum of Agreement to be prepared between the facility, the State Historic Preservation Officer, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.
