Abstract : This study involved intensive literature and site file search as well as consultation with individual knowledgeable about local cultural resources and environment. Data on archaeological site distribution; prehistoric and historic settlement patterns and the environmental setting of the study area were analyzed using an interdisciplinary approach to identify areas which would have the highest probability of archaeological site occurrence. This distribution of archaeological sites was examined in relation to elevation, soils, landforms, biotic communities, water resources, and the man-made environment.
