Archaeological Field Reconnaissance Quakertown Recreation Area 1980

» Downloads & Basic Metadata

Summary

In 1980, an archaeological field reconnaissance was conducted by Dr. Ronald Hicks of Ball State University on the area affected by the proposed improvements to the Quakertown Recreational Area in Liberty Township, Union County, near Dunlapsville, Indiana. Since vegetation obscured ground surface visibility, the entire area was shovel probed at 30-foot intervals. The survey and shovel probe testing revealed no cultural material. Neither the owner of a nearby farm nor an employee at the Quakertown Recreation Area was aware of any prehistoric or historic artifacts that were found within the project area or within the general vicinity. It was, therefore, recommended that the project be allowed to proceed as planned without further archaeological assessment (Buehrig 1980).

The digital materials in this collection were processed by the Veterans Curation Program (VCP), and include the finding aid, investigation report, investigation reports for E-26B and E3-604A, oversized material database, and a scanned asset key. Additional digital materials held by the VCP include correspondence, field notes, folder listings, interdepartmental communication, invoices, maps, a progress report and site forms. For additional information on these materials, refer to the Finding Aid.

    DOCUMENT [ID: 394639] Jorge I. Carrion.

    This collection is referred to as “Archaeological Field Reconnaissance Quakertown Recreation Area 1980.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is one half (0.5) of a linear inch. This collection was acquired in generally good condition and contained only paper records. One oversized item was also included that was humidified, flattened, and then placed in oversized storage. Tape removal and mending was needed for...

    DOCUMENT [ID: 394638] Jeanette Beuhrig.

    An archaeological field reconnaissance of the area to be affected by proposed improvements to the Quakertown Recreation Area in Liberty Township, Union County, near Dunlapsville, Indiana revealed no cultural material. Therefore, it is recommended that the project be allowed to proceed as planned without further archaeological assessment.

  3. Report, Whitewater State Park, Project numbers E1-26B And E3-604A, Department of Natural Resources (1977)
    DOCUMENT [ID: 394644] Tony DeRegnaucourt.

    This report represents the results of an archaeological survey of project number E1-26B and E3-604A was accomplished on September 27 and 28, 1977 for Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The survey located three site concentrations, which include chert flakes, choppers, side scrapers, and fire cracked rock. The quantity of finds discovered during reconnaissance indicated the need for further testing to evaluate the extent and nature of archaeological deposits.
