  • Descrição: Descriptive note: Final rept..
    Archeological survey consisted of intensive pedestrian survey augmented with systematic shovel testing. Approximately 210 acres were surveyed. One previously recorded archeological site, Bayou L'Ours Mounds (16LF54), was identified. This site consists of two prehistoric earthen mounds, shell middens, and associated habitation area overlooking West Fork Bayou L'Ours, within the Lafourche delta complex. Additional shovel testing, auger testing, and test unit excavation at 16LF54 helped define the horizontal and vertical limits of the site and yielded a variety of ceramic types probably dating from Troyville through Mississippian periods. In addition, a human (female) burial was recovered during test unit excavation. The burial likely occurred during the early occupation of the site. A variety of faunal remains were recovered from the site, as well. Although 16LF54 had been disturbed by excavation of an inlet and several borrow pits, most of the site possesses good archeological integrity and considerable research potential. Site 16LF54 should be avoided during levee construction or excavated further to mitigate impact of the site. Finally, a locus of modern refuse associated with a hunting camp was identified within the project area; it lacked research potential due to its recent age. No further testing is recommended at this locus.
