During May of 1989 Dr. Nicholas Honerkamp of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) led a team of students enrolled in the ANTH 335 Archaeological Field School course in a survey of the Citico Site (40HA65). This well-known mound site is located adjacent to Amnicola Highway in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The area covered during the study consisted of an approximately 450 x 50 m strip of property situated between the Sandbar Restaurant and Citico Creek (Figure 1); the University of Tennessee is the current landowner. The purpose of the survey was to locate and identify any significant prehistoric or historic sites in the project area prior to its development. Current plans call for the construction of a boat house, road, and a parking facility within the parcel. The Citico mound and village complex are known to have existed in the area just east of Citico Creek prior to their destruction in the 20th century. Hence, a survey of the boat house parcel was desirable in order to determine if any remnants of the site might still be present and subject to disturbance or destruction by planned construction activities.
