Abstract:

Preliminary examination of photographs provided by the Army Corps and a literature review indicated that the prescribed area to be surveyed held little promise of the existence of archaeological or historic sites. The survey zone is only 100 to 150 ft wide, and is mostly beach terrace and sandy beach, covered at high tide. Earlier surveys did not note the existence of any sites on the beach or in the survey area. A walk-through survey of the Auasi Harbor Project area revealed no remains of archaeologiclal or historic sites, as was expected from the pre-field review of aerial photographs and pertinent literature.
