Abstract:

The project area encompasses the Asan and Calacag Rivers in Asan, and areas immediately adjacent that might be impacted by the proposed flood control project. The survey included both a literature search and a physical investigation of the study area. As a result of the literature search and walk-through reconnaissance, the potential for subsurface deposits of prehistoric material was clearly established. Test excavation, however, revealed no intact deposits of cultural material, suggesting that 1 as yet undiscovered prehistoric sites may be present in the uplands south of the project area, 2 sites previously existing within the study area were destroyed by the 1944 invasion of Asan by American forces, andor 3 archaeological deposits which may exist in the study area are of such limited size that testing did not reveal them. Based on the reconnaissance then, there is no evidence that the proposed project will have an impact on archaeological or historical resources in the Asan and Calacag River areas.
