An archeological reconnaissance of the Lake Robinson to Sumter 230 kV transmission line used a probabilistic sampling design and predictive modeling to generate expectations about the nature of the archeological record in the upper Coastal Plain of South Carolina. The 62-km long corridor parallels the Fall Line sandhills. Six sites and three isolated finds were located in survey transects which comprised approximately 25% of the total corridor. Three historic sites were located on the better drained upland soils, conducive to the agrarian settlement in the area. Four of the prehistoric sites were identified as Woodland. These sites are compared with one another and with other Woodland sites in the various physiographic provinces of the state.
