This report presents the results of a field survey of archaeological sites in proposed construction areas in the Ten Mile- Brian Creek Watershed, Bacon County, Georgia. The areas surveyed were construction units 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10, located along tributaries and previously existing channels of Ten Mile and Briar Creeks in Bacon County. All together 7.4 linear miles of channel right-of-way were surveyed. The field survey required 64 man hours to complete and was conducted over a 4 day period between August 14 and August 18, 1975. Laboratory analysis and report writing required 65 man hours and were accomplished between August 23 and August 28, 1975. The survey was funded and this report prepared under the provisions of a contractual agreement between the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Service and the Department of Anthropology, University of Georgia. As outlined in the agreement specifications (see attached copy in Appendix), the contract stipulates the submission of a final report containing the following: (1) determination, description, and map location of all archaeological sites in the construction areas; (2) an assessment of the potential effect of the proposed construction on the archaeological resources; (3) a suggested program of the measures and estimated costs necessary to adequately mitigate the impact of the construction on the resources; and (4) the determination of the archaeological and historical levels of significance of the sites for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. This information is presented in the present report. Ms. Sharon L Goad, as Field Director, was responsible for the field survey, laboratory analysis and report writing. David J. Hally, as Principal Investigator, provided limited supervision of all phases of the project and assisted in report writing.
