Phase I Archaeological Identification: Qualification Training Range (QTR) Site Fort Lee, VA
In 2007 Fort Lee, Virginia, drafted a Range Master Plan that identified plans for the existing ranges as well as future expansion. A Qualification Training Range (QTR) was included among those plans. The proposed QTR will comprise approximately 40 acres (161,874 square meters) and will be constructed immediately north of an existing range (Range 4) and east of Fort Lee’s existing impact area (See Appendix A). Because the project area lies adjacent to an impact area and had the potential to contain unexploded ordnance (UXO) previous archaeological surveys had not been conducted. For this reason the undertaking prompted Fort Lee Cultural Resource Management (CRM) to initiate an investigation into the possibility of unidentified cultural resources.
In addition to the field work, background research was conducted in an attempt to track a chain of title and identify potential historic resources in the area. Research was undertaken at the Prince George County Courthouse, the Library of Virginia and the U.S. Army Quartermaster Museum, as well as with online resources such as the Library of Congress online catalog. The survey resulted in the identification of one new archaeological site, 44PG541. The site was identified by the remains of several in situ foundation stones and brick piles forming the outline of an approximately 20 x 20 foot structure with an adjoining 19 x 14 foot addition. Artifacts recovered date the site to the turn of the 20th century with documentary evidence suggesting the possibility of an African American occupation.
