Cultural Resources Reconnaissance of Construction Project Areas on Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge, Georgia Volume 1 and 2

Report Number
Year of Publication

An archaeological survey of portions of Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge, Georgia, located few archaeological sites. None of these sites will be adversely affected by proposed construction projects in the Refuge. The limited site data recovered substantiates recent proposals concerning the geomorphology of coastal island development. A review of the archaeological literature demonstrates the existence of extensive and intensive prehistoric occupation of portions of the Refuge. Historical documentation indicates the presence of a number of historic sites on the Refuge, including a Civil War fortification and a Black owned pre-Civil War plantation. The location, identification and protection of these historic sites are recommended.
