Abstract:

In December, 1981, New World Research, Inc. conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of 2,200 ac in the Fort Benning Military Reservation, Alabama and Georgia. The work was performed under Contract No. CX5000-2-0087 for the Archeological Services Branch, Division of National Register Programs, National Park Service, Southeast Region. As part of the scope-of-work, the applicability of a model of site location formulated by Remote Sensing Analysts RSA was to be tested Kohler et al., 1980. The survey identified or relocated 37 sites, including 20 prehistoric, 15 historic, and two prehistorichistoric sites in addition, 32 isolated finds were identified and recorded. The model developed by RSA was tested and found to be generally correct, though mapping problems were identified. Results from the 2,200-ac survey were extrapolated using the refined computer model to the entire 22,000-ac maneuver area to highlight locations of potential archaeological sites.
