Abstract : This document presents the results of Phase I cultural resources survey of the Alhambra to Hohen-Solms and Hohen-Solms to Modeste Project Items in Ascension and Iberville Parishes, Louisiana.

Christopher Goodwin & Associates, Inc.; is was performed on behalf of the U.S. Array Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District. The Areas of Potential Effect consists of that portion of the batture that lies between the extant flood control structure and a series of borrow pits excavated to construct the present levee. This area measures approximately 10 to 15 m (32.11 to 49.2 ft) in width. The Alhambra to Hohen-Solms Project Item measures approximately 4,300 m (14,107.6 ft) in length and is extends from a point west of the town of Cannonburg to a point east of the town of Holen-Solms, i.e., from River Mile 191 to 185-R. The Hohen-Solms Project Item measures approximately 5,100 m (16,732.3 ft) in length and it extends from a point east of the town of Hohen-Solms to a point south of the town of Philadelphia Point, i.e., from River Mile 185 to 179-R. Prior to fieldwork the proposed project items were stratified into 14 survey segments, each of which was characterized as possessing high, moderate, or low probabilities for containing intact cultural deposits. Areas characterized at having a low potential for containing intact cultural deposits were subjected to pedestrian survey only; no backhoe trenches were excavated in these anus. In areas designated at having a high probability for possessing intact cultural deposits, backhoe trenches were excavated at 30 m (98.4 ft) intervals. In moderate probability areas, backhoe trenches were spaced at 50 m (164 ft) intervals.
