Phase I Archaeological Survey of Portions of Stephens Creek Stream Restoration Tract in Gallatin County, KY

  • Ahler, Steven (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


This proposal has been prepared in response to a request from Mr. Scott Fennell of the Northern Kentucky University Center for Environmental Restoration (NKU-CER; the Client) for a brief proposal and cost estimate for conducting Phase I archaeological survey of limited portions of the Stephens Creek Stream Restoration tract in Gallatin County, Kentucky. Several thousand feet of stream courses within this tract will be subjected to various types of stream restoration work that involve different levels of earth moving and construction activities. The tract (project area) measures about 396 acres in extent, but only small sections of the overall tract will be subjected to systematic archaeological survey (see below). The work that will be conducted will conform to the Kentucky Heritage Council’s Specifications for Conducting Fieldwork and Preparing Cultural Resource Assessment Reports (revised 2006). The Phase I archaeological survey will provide an inventory of the cultural resources within the investigated portions of the project area and will provide preliminary evaluations of the research potential of each cultural resource (archaeological site) identified and of each site’s eligibility for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). An archaeological site is any location on the landscape that produces artifacts more than 50 years old from intact deposits.
