Archaeological and Ethnohistorical Survey at Tennessee Colony Lake 1975

Author(s): Jeffrey J. Richner; Reed Lee

Year: 1977


Archaeological investigations at Tennessee Colony Lake in 1975 were directed toward examining site distributions and densities within a variety of survey sampling strata. Utilizing data derived from the 1974 transect survey to refine field and analysis procedures, a series of 52 quadrats were surveyed as a part of this phase. In all 46 sites that were located, sites shed considerable light on the locations, differences, and similarities in prehistoric, protohistoric, and historic land-use practices.

These data were subsequently utilized to suggest appropriate management actions and pose viable avenues for future archaeological research in the project area. It was recommended that additional survey and testing was necessary in order to derive a sample such that responsible projections of site density and location could be made. In addition control of the site chronology within the impact zones was recognized as a critical precondition to substantive studies of settlement and subsistence research.
