Author(s): Michael Cook; Marcus Grant; Eric Hansen; Richard Arnold; Sherri Wenzlau; Robert Dickerson

Year: 2009


Geo-Marine, Inc., conducted archaeological inventory of 6,989 acres on EC South Range, part of the Nellis Test and Training Range. The primary goal of the project was to integrate empirical data, including associations of features and material culture with potential sacred significance, and ethnographic data to characterize the archaeological resources of EC South Range. Ethnographic data were provided by Native American crew members during fieldwork. The project addressed requirements under provisions of Sections 106 and 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Field inventory was conducted between September 17, 2008, and February 6, 2009, documenting 71 newly recorded sites within 52 sample units. Most sites reflected use for settlement and subsistence, but many also had archaeological indicators of symbolic and sociocultural use.
