Report Number
Year of Publication

An archaeological survey was conducted at a proposed 60 acre landfill site in Rabun County, Georgia. Two and a half man days were required to complete the field investigations. Subsurface inspection with fire rakes and surface inspection of dirt roads and gullies revealed two prehistoric sites, only one of which was actually locat':d within the project boundaries. Artifacts from this site indicate that it was probably a tool manufacturing area utilized during the Archaic Period. Because of severe damage to the site caused by erosion and clear cutting, it is recommended that the site is not eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
