Phase I Survey at the Posey Site, Naval Support Facility Indian Head, Charles County, Maryland (2012.041)

Summary

On behalf of the Department of the Navy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Washington, The Louis Berger Group, Inc. (LBG), carried out a Phase I archaeological survey at Naval Support Facility Indian Head, Charles County, Maryland. The Navy is planning to upgrade riverwater lines at the installation, and the archaeological investigation was conducted as part of Section 106 compliance efforts for the project. Two alternative alignments for riverwater line replacement were examined, which are on the periphery of the Posey Site (18CH281), a site that has been previously recommended as eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The site is a Native American village that has lost a degree of integrity but has yielded important information concerning Native American lifeways during the Middle Woodland, Late Woodland, and contact periods (sixteenth and seventeenth centuries).

This project contains an artifact inventory, excavation photographs, photograph log, and utilized codes/methods for a phase I survey at the Posey Site, Naval Support Facility Indian Head, Charles County, Maryland.
