Sites 41FY421, 41FY422, and 41FY424 are upland aboriginal sites situated on divides separating Robinson, Cedar, and Bartons Creeks in northwest Fayette County. These sites are characterized by generally shallow, un-stratified sandy deposits. The cultural inventory is limited to stone materials--primarily thermally altered chert and quartzite and lithic debitage. Diagnostic cultural indicators are relatively scarce, with a large majority of these being less than 2000 years in age. One site, 41FY422, produced 25 hearths and related features. Most of these are apparently less than 2000 to 3000 years in age as well.
