Abstract:

In September of 1980, Iroquois Research Institute conducted an archeological survey of three levee and revetment items on the Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Two historic sites were discovered. One consisted of an inlet and possible fragmentary wharf located in the Bohemia Revetment. At the Harlem Levee Setback, brick scatters, in situ brick remains, and a large standing house were identified within the project right-of-way. The remains at the Harlem Setback are probably associated with the Old Harlem Plantation and are potentially significant to local and regional history and to historic archeology. Author
