Archaeological survey was conducted by the Institute of Archeology and Anthropology, University of South Carolina during the first week of December, 1972 in the Horse Range Swamp Watershed District, located in eastern Orangeburg County, South Carolina. A stream channel improvement program sponsored by local organizations--the Horse Range Swamp Conservation District and the Orangeburg Soil and Water Conservation District--is scheduled to begin early in January, 1973. Archaeological survey revealed a sparse distribution of Archaic and Early Woodland sites in the area. No sites were found in the path of the proposed construction. Thus, survey results indicate that there is little possibility that stream channel improvement will destroy any significant archaeological sites.
