Phase II Archaeological Evaluation Site 44CE0431 Fort A.P. Hill, Caroline County, Virginia
Part of the Phase II Archaeological Evaluation, Site 44CE0431, Fort A.P. Hill (AP2012.001) project
The Fort A.P. Hill Cultural Resource Manager, under the Environmental Division of the Directorate of Public Works within Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia, has completed Phase II archaeological evaluation investigations at Site 44CE0431, Fort A.P. Hill, Caroline County, Virginia. Site 44CE0431 was originally identified during a Phase I survey conducted in association with the National Scout Jamboree.
The objective of the archaeological evaluation of Site 44CE0431 was to determine (1) the site’s subsurface integrity and (2) if the site is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The investigations included (1) pedestrian surface survey and (2) the excavation of three 1x1-meter (3.3x3.3 foot) test units. The fieldwork resulted in the recovery of 700 artifacts from three test units. No intact cultural features or intact cultural deposits were identified.
Site 44CE0431 represents an early twentieth-century farmstead occupation with remnant late nineteenth-century components, and with later military disturbances. Soil profiles encountered during the archaeological evaluation indicate that the site has been extensively disturbed, with the majority of artifacts having been recovered from redeposited soils. No intact cultural features or intact cultural deposits were identified at the site. All of the former structures at the site were demolished during military training activities beginning in the 1940s, and all surface and subsurface cultural features have been extensively disturbed by military activities. Subsequently, Site 44CE0431 is recommended as not eligible for inclusion in the National Register under Criterion D. Based on historical research and information provided by descendants of the former landowner, the site is also recommended as not eligible under Criteria A, B, and C.
This report includes appendices of deed book pages and the artifact inventory.
