This layer overlaid a brownish yellow silty clay B-horizon. All artifacts were recovered from the A-horizon and surrounding shovel tests JT-2 and JT-3 displayed vastly different stratigraphy likely a result of disturbance associated with the nearby homes and the sites proximity to the gravel driveway. 0 6 in. 12 in. 18 in. 24 in.

The site is represented by 6 artifacts recovered from a single shovel test, STP JT-1. Because more than 3 artifacts were recovered from this location it was determined to me a site and not an isolated find. The assemblage is primarily composed of lithic artifacts; however, a single cut nail was recovered. The lithic artifacts include 2 secondary flakes, 1 tertiary flakes, 1 primary flake, and 1 piece of angular debris (Figure 33, p. 58). All of the prehistoric artifacts were quartz, likely procured from local cobble beds and outcrops.
