The Anniston Army Depot, located in east central Alabama, is comprised of 15,214 acres. The Depot is a government-owned operation under the jurisdiction of the U. S. Army Depot System Command DESCOM, a DARCOM sub-command. The facility occupies well drained upland terrain composed of rolling land, low hills, and valleys within the Ridge and Valley province of the Appalachian Highlands. A review of the known and potential archeological resources of the Depot indicates that there is little likelihood that significant prehistoric or historic materials will be found in the higher elevations and within the strongly acid soils, but may be associated with some of the lower river terraces. There have been no previous archeological surveys on the facility. It is recommended that more intensive archival and archeological field inventory be completed for the facility, for the development of any needed historic preservation plan, or any ground-disturbing project-specific compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act and related statutes. Originator-supplied keywords include Archeological management, Army installation management, and Environmental assessment.
