Abstract : This report documents archaeological site testing of a small historic site (3CT263) located within the direct impact area of the proposed Edmondson Sewage Disposal Lagoon near the town of Edmondson, Crittenden County, Arkansas. The site consists of a low density surface scatter of historical artifacts at the western edge of the proposed Edmondson Sewage Disposal Lagoon. Consultation of the Arkansas Archaeological Survey State site files, Crittenden County Library Arkansas History Room, Crittenden County Courthouse Tax Assessment Records, and C.H. Nash Museum site files show that no previously recorded sites were located on the project tract. A total controlled surface collection and subsurface testing recovered 25 artifacts. Ceramic and glass artifacts recovered from the site indicate a late nineteenth to early twentieth century affiliation. The number of kitchen related artifacts and the lack of architectural artifacts suggest the site represents a historical dump area. Testing did not recover significant archaeological deposits. Given the lack of potentially significant cultural resources at the site, no further work is recommended.
