Abstract:

In late September 1988, the Museum of Geoscience at Louisiana State University began cultural resources investigations of the proposed Solari borrow pit area in Empire, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. This work is part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, New Orleans to Venice Hurricane Protection Project. Investigations consisted of a records review and historical investigation of the area near the project and Plaquemines Parish in general. The on site investigation consisted of intensive pedestrian survey coupled with shovel testing. The historical and archaeological investigations of the area indicated there were no historic or prehistoric cultural resources within the proposed Solari borrow pit area.
