In August through October 1980, New World Research, Inc., conducted intensive testing and data recovery investigations at four sites 9EB92, 9EB207, 9EB208 and 9EB219 in the Richard B. Russell Multiple Resource Area, Elbert County, Georgia. Previous research had indicated the possible presence of a Stallings Island occupation at 9EB219, and Mississippian occupations at 9EB92, 9EB207, and 9EB219. Only survey level work had been conducted at 9EB208, however the data suggested that the site might have functioned as a quarry location. The NWR investigations confirmed the presence of a Savannah River Formative occupation at 9EB219, in addition to Woodland and Mississippian occupations. Limited late Mississippian materials were recovered from 9EB92 and 9eb207, however the focus of occupations at both sites appears to have been during the Savannah II period. At 9EB208 the possibility of the site use as a quarry location could not be confirmed due to its disturbed condition however, Archaic and early Mississippian use of the site location was substantiated.
