No significant archeological remains are recorded at Scranton Army Ammunition Plants SAAP. Potential archeological resources at SAAP may occur on two land surfaces 1 the present-day surface may include mid-to-late nineteenth century archeological cultural remnants of railroad-related industrial development which preceded the extant structures used by SAAP, and 2 the original land surface, approximately 40 ft. below a fill deposit which comprises the current land surface. At least 16 structures stood on the original land surface as did several city streets. Remnants of these nineteenth century cultural resources may be present beneath the fill. While no prehistoric or early historic archeological sites are recorded at or near SAAP, it is possible that such resources may exist in undisturbed portions of the original ground surface. SAAPs location near Roaring Brook would have been a preferred location for aboriginal and orearly historic utilization.
