This report presents the results of an archaeological field survey in the proposed construction area for a county service buildings site near the City of Claxton, Evans County, Georgia. The county service buildings site will occupy a currently cultivated field approximately one mile east of Claxton. The field is situated on a bluff overlooking a small, unnamed tributary of the Canoochee River. The elevation of the bluff is from 160 to 180 feet above sea level. The survey locality is slightly over 60 acres.

The field survey was conducted by University of Georgia archaeologists Dr. Paul R. Fish and Paul Efland on March 12, 1976. Field inspection of the locality required approximately 10 man hours to complete. Dr. Paul R. Fish and Dr. David J. Hally, Department of Anthropology, University of Georgia acted as principal investigators for this project. The survey was undertaken as the result of a letter of agreement between the University of Georgia and the Evans County Commissioners.
