II. PHYSICAL HISTORY AND ANALYSIS SECTION (continued)
C. ARCHEOLOGICAL DATA SECTION
Archeological testing was conducted at five locations along the structure's foundation on June 25, 1984 by Archeologist Harvey Shields. Miscellaneous metal and glass were found. It is the determination of Shields that the archeological remains present would add very little to the understanding of life at the cabin beyond what already exists in historical documents.
Archeological clearance is provided to proceed with foundation stabilization within a distance of 2 meters from the building under two conditions:
1. Tools and other complete paraphernalia will be collected during trenching for stabilization, and the placement of the materials relative to the cabin wall noted, and mapped.
2. If concealed archeological resources are encountered during construction, all necessary steps will be taken to protect them, and the Superintendent, and Chief, Division of Cultural Resources, Alaska Region, notified immediately. Miscellaneous materials such as nails, broken glass, tin cans, etc., are not considered archeological resources for this purpose, unless a large trash deposit, privy, or other feature are located. Any prehistoric period remains encountered will be protected.
