Semi-Annual Technical Report, July 2010, Fort A.P. Hill (AP2012.001)


The Fort A.P. Hill Cultural Resource Manager, under the Environmental Division of the Directorate of Public Works within Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia, completed Phase I archaeological survey in association with proposed forestry activities in 10 forestry blocks located in Training Areas 5, 7, and 8; Controlled Access Area 16; the Boy Scout Jamboree (BSJ) area; and the unmanned aerial vehicle landing area, Fort A.P. Hill, Caroline County, Virginia. The proposed forestry activities included one clearcut (UAV Tree Clearing), one hardwood selection cut (Block CA16B-09, and eight prescribed burn areas (05-J-FY10, 05-L-FY10, 05-M-FY10, 07-BFY10, 08-B-FY10, 08-D-FY10, BSJ-10-FY10, and BSJ-12-FY10). The Project Area consists of approximately 906.7 hectares (2,240.5 acres) of forestland.

The objective of the archaeological survey was to identify any historic properties that may be located within the proposed forestry blocks and evaluate the potential eligibility of any such resources for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Ten previously recorded archaeological sites (44CE0323, 44CE0324, 44CE0327, 44CE0328, 44CE0329, 44CE03339, 44CE0528, 44CE0540, 44CE0575, and 44CE0577) and two previously unrecorded archaeological sites (44CE0673 and 44CE0674) were identified within the Project Area.

Five sites (44CE0328, 44CE0329, 44CE0339, 44CE0575, and 44CE0577) are recommended not eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places and seven sites (44CE0323, 44CE0324, 44CE0327, 44CE0528, 44CE0540, 44CE0673, and 44CE0674) are recommended potentially eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. While Site 44CE024 will be avoided during proposed forestry activities, none of the remaining archaeological sites will be avoided during the proposed activities.

This project contains the report and photo log, as well as survey photographs.
