Recording the Cold War: Identifying and Collecting Cold War Resources Data on Military Installations (Legacy 07-285)Courtney Williams
The goals of this study were threefold: to identify DoD Cold War facilities and associated documentation at a select number of installations; to create a systematic approach for identifying, compiling, and analyzing available data; and to prepare time and cost metrics on the process.
Project includes archaeological and ecological research on prehistoric sites in the Perry Mesa region of central Arizona focused on understanding long term human impacts on the landscape. Research area is within the Agua Fria National Monument managed by the BLM.
Constructing a Regional Historical Context for Terminal Pleistocene/Early Holocene Archaeology of the North-Central Mojave Desert (Legacy 07-349)Courtney Williams
Naval Air Weapons Station (NAWS) China Lake lacks a strong historic context, making difficult the stewardship, Determinations of Eligibility for the National Register, and management of cultural resources, as required by Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act. This project's report is a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency study identifying current data gaps and systematizing data collection to facilitate developing and tailoring future research designs for early site management.
This report proposes a minimum set of Cultural Resources Business Data Standards for use in DoD cultural resources management programs. These draft standards represent the minimum set of data and associated attributes that DoD is recommended to collect and maintain in order to support its cultural resources management program. The standards were developed by assessing the current state of cultural resources data collection and management processes in the DoD and identifying all of the data...
Using Black Earth and Remote Sensing of Indicator Plants for Identification of Prehistoric Archaeological Sensitivity and Potential Site Integrity in the Eastern Woodlands (Legacy 10-416)Courtney Williams
This project collected soils data at four installations (Fort Drum, NY; Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA, Cheatham Annex of Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, VA, and Dare County Bombing Range of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, NC) to explore the efficacy of black earth as an indicator of Indian activity on the landscape. The project's report includes analysis and major conclusions, which were applied to develop management strategies that can be implemented across a wide range...
