Abstract : This report describes a cultural resources survey of a proposed borrow area along the Belle River in lower St. Martin Parish, Louisiana. The area surveyed was, in general, profoundly disturbed by previous construction activity. Three possible cultural resources were located along the Belle River in the survey corridor; these are tentatively identified as components of a previously identified site. Opposition from the land tenant prevented subsurface testing of these locations. An additional prehistoric site, was located immediately outside of the survey area. Although testing was conducted here, no bones or artifacts were recovered. Neither site will be negatively impacted by the proposed borrowing activities. At this time, neither site is eligible for placement on the National Register. Included in the following report is a description of the area's geology and geomorphology, biota, historic and prehistoric settlements, and cultural resources.
