Cultural Resources Reconnaissance Report, Ohio River Environmental Assessment and Kanawha River Project 1977-1978


The goal of the Cultural Resources Assessment of Recorded prehistoric Resources contained in Archaeological Sites was to gather and systematically organize all available data relating to site location, size, elevation, soil type, cultural and temporal affiliation, type of site and condition. Although some of these areas lie at elevations above normal high water levels and are not presently affected by erosion, construction projects by private, state and federal agencies are presently affecting, and in the future will be affecting, these resources. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers permit procedures may be relevant to construction in some of these areas and, therefore, resource data from higher elevations has been included. The addition of these data also further facilitates the interpretations which can be made of cultural distributions, as distributions drawn from the limited number of recorded sites in the lower elevations may be fallacious.

In order to accomplish data recording and listing, relevant information from the West Virginia Geologic and Economic Survey files was recorded by code for each site in the study area. Knowledge of other sites was obtained from published literature, from unpublished information, from local individuals which could be verified, and from data obtained in recent surveys.
