Abstract

This report documents archaeological monitoring activities carried out for one day in December of 2001 at the Citico Site, 40HA65, under the direction of Nicholas Honerkamp. The monitoring was in conjunction with construction work at the location of the former Sandbar restaurant. Demolition of the foundations of the former structure had revealed a high vertical profile that contained two prehistoric burial pits beneath a midden stratum. Honerkamp had noticed the presence of the burials and reported them to the Hamilton County Medical Examiner's Office on Wednesday, November 28. Thomas Bodkin of that office met with Honerkamp at the site on November 29 and confirmed the presence of human bone in both burials. At that point developer Lawton Haygood was contacted and a meeting was arranged between Tennessee State Archaeologist Nick Fielder, Haygood, Honerkamp and Bodkin, and local Native American representatives. It was agreed that the burials would not be disturbed by further construction, that they would be covered to protect them from looters, and that some archeological monitoring of construction activities would be required.
