Abstract : Between July 23rd and August 16th, 1990 an archeological test was conducted on two prehistoric sites within the public use area of Allatoona Lake. The sites were initially recorded as a consequence of archeological investigations conducted by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Park Service in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The sites were revisited during a survey of the Allatoona project land holdings above the floodpool in 1985 and 1986. At that time it was recommended that the sites be further evaluated should future development plans involve the prospect of damaging impacts. Due to plans initiated by Cobb County Parks and Recreation Department to build the Lake Acworth Golf complex on a portion of the public use area of Allatoona Lake, adjacent to the Lake Acworth Sub-Impoundment, which may effect these archeological sites, a program of archeological test investigation was initiated. Testing documented that both sites contained undisturbed deposits below the plowzone and a high degree of integrity. The occupation records and configurations further suggest that both can contribute to resolving many of the long-standing problems that exist in Allatoona Lake cultural sequence. As a consequence, both sites are judge to be significant and appear to be eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
