This report presents the results of a cultural resources survey of Missouri Bend and Plaquemine Bend Revetment Items, in West Baton Rouge and Iberville Parishes, Louisiana. Fieldwork was conducted during May and August 1989. A number of high probability areas for archeological sites were identified using historic maps and archival information. The Clara Belle Plantation site 161V160 was identified during the survey of the Plaquemine Bend Revetment Item. Medora Plantation, another high probability area, was tested using an auger testing at this locus failed to produce any cultural material. A Phase II evaluation of the Clara Belle Plantation site 161V160 revealed redeposited artifacts dating from the 1840s through the 1870s.
