Phase I Investigations, National Naval Medical Center (NNMC), Washington D.C. (2008.004)

Summary

A Phase I Archaeological Evaluation was conducted by EAC/A Archaeology within a roughly 14.3 acres study area at the National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, in Montgomery County, Maryland. As surface visibility was limited, all testing consisted of subsurface excavation, and a total of 350 STPs were excavated on a 10m rectilinear grid

This survey identified five prehistoric sites, and a large area of mixed and apparently redeposited historic materials. The majority of historic material was modern and found in disturbed context. Based on the amount of prior disturbance noted, these historic material have not been registered as an archaeological site, and are not recommended for further study.

The prehistoric material recovered included a number of quartz flakes, several informal tools, and other quartz lithics and debitage. Five sites were located on hill slopes and summits between tributaries to Stoney Creek. All sites identified consisted of lithic scatters from an indeterminate period of prehistory.

This project contains prehistoric and historic artifact catalogs, photograph log, and excavation photographs for sites 18MOX113, 18MO648, 18MO647, 18MO646, 18MO645, and 18MO644, identified during phase I investigations, National Naval Medical Center (NNMC), Washington D.C.
