Phase I Archaeological Survey of Twelve Areas at the Blossom Point Test Facility Charles County, Maryland
Part of the Blossom Point Project Page (DRAFT) project
A Phase I Archaeological Survey was conducted during the summer of 1993 by MAAR Associates, Inc. (MAI), Newark, Delaware for Geo-Marine, Inc. on twelve selected areas of the Blossom Point Test Facility in Charles County, Maryland. The survey, conducted under contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Contract DACA63-90-D-0061) was undertaken in compliance with Section 6.3.3 of an archeological overview and management plan (Gardner et al. 1985:6-6), consisted of the review of previous survey reports to relocate and map all known resources; the review of additional archaeological studies to assist in the design of a sensitivity model for the Blossom Point Test Facility; the development of a disturbance assessment based on natural and military-generated ground-disturbing activities; and the field survey of additional undisturbed, accessible areas with high and moderate site potential within the facility.
The background research and field survey was conducted over a period of months, correlating MAI field work with Blossom Point Test Facility activities. Although vegetation varied greatly from area to area, surface visibility was generally low and subsurface shovel testing proved to be the major means of site location. A total of 28 sites had previously been recorded from the Blossom Point Test Facility. As a result of this survey, MAAR Associates, Inc. added 10 sites to the total.
