"In response to continuing population growth, the City of North Augusta is expanding its recreational fadlities with construction of the Hammond's Ferry Soccer Complex near Savannah River (Rgs. 1, 2). Property acquisition for the project was funded by a grant from SC Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism (SC-PRT), with developnent to be mmpleted using federal and state funding, induding the Land and Water Conservation Fund and local sales tax funds.
In May 2004, the City of North Augusta contracted with AF Consultants (AFC) to conduct an archaeological survey of the proposed soccer complex property that would meet state and federal standards and guidelines for federal undertakings. In preparing this report, AF Consultants used field methods and analytical procedures designed to provide specific recommendations and information for review by participants in the Sec. 106 consultation process (SC State Historic Preservation Office et al. 2000)."

General Note: "Chances are good to excellent that dearing and construction for the soccer complex will encounter undisturbed archaeological features associated with the late 18th -early 19th century occupation of campbellton. According to aerial photography, the south and west portions of the survey footprint today have not been farmed for at least 20 years. Although these areas are now mostly wooded, the dense scrub, brier, and open-field succession there prevents access and obscures the ground surfaces. Prior to undertaking any further site testing or other cultural resources investigation, it would be essential to have these areas bush hogged (but not scraped) to allow "clean" access to ground surfaces."
