Archaeology at Warren Grove Gunnery Range, Pine Barrens, Burlington County, New Jersey
In the winter of 2015-2016 and the spring of 2017, the University of Montana-Center for Integrated Research on the Environment and GAI Consultants (UM-GAI) conducted an archaeological survey and evaluation project at the New Jersey Air National Guard’s Warren Grove Gunnery Range. The project was funded by the Air National Guard through a cooperative agreement with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (Omaha District) and the UM. UM-GAI completed archaeological survey of ca. 9,911 acres of the range. The survey identified and evaluated nine historic/modern sites and one of three previously-reported prehistoric sites. Two sites are recommended NRHP eligible as part of a historic charcoal production complex: UMWG-1 is a probable late 19th century collier’s hut with ceramics and associated charcoal production features, and UMWG-9 is a nearby set of at least eight charcoal kilns and possible associated transportation features. UM-GAI is participating in public outreach programs including schools and conferences as well as updating the GIS archaeological predictive models for the range and region.
