EAS is preparing a phase I intensive archaeological survey and inventory project at Norfolk Naval Shipyard Annexes and Areas in Virginia.  A desktop archaeological characterization study in the form of a simple historic land use study is being completed prior to the survey. The areas being surveyed are located within three NNSY, satellite annexes and one former annex bordering the Shipyard proper. The surveys include both shovel testing and mechanical coring based on the results of the historic land use study.  This project is being conducted to comply with Sections 106 and 100 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.
