Summary

During the summer of 2003, BUFF Archeologist Charlotte Hunter assisted by Paraprofessional Archeologist Anthony Collins and members of the Buffalo National River (BUFF) Fire Management Team, conducted a reconnaissance inventory of the Rough Edge prescribed bum unit in the Middle District of Buffalo National River (BUFF), Searcy County, Arkansas.

This unit is scheduled for a prescribed bum the purpose of which is to reduce its wildfire potential by reducing hazardous fuel loads, The bums also keep fields open by removing young trees and brush and thereby enhances their potential use by wildlife, especially deer and elk, Prescribed bums take place under low to moderate burning conditions usually occurring in late fall through early spring.

A pre-inventory review of Archeological Site Management Information System files on record at BUFF and MWAC indicated that no known archeological sites had been recorded within the Rough Edge bum unit. However, two historic cemeteries were known to exist within the Rough Edge bum unit.
