Abstract

During the fall of 1989, the Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, performed an archaeological survey of the Radisson Hotel tract on the Savannah riverfront for the Columbia Sussex Corporation. Concurrently, Panamerican Consultants, Inc., of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, performed a marine survey of the shoreline area. These surveys were performed on a 3.68 acre tract of land just east of Emmet Park in downtown Savannah. The surveys were required by the Department of Natural Resources, State of Georgia, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers to determine the environmental and cultural resource impacts of the proposed construction. Agency review requirements took into account the extensive maritime history of the site and the fact that submerged as well as terrestrial resources might be harmed by hotel construction activities or by construction of the associated 1200-footlongriverwalk corridor along the shoreline.
