dc.description.abstract This thesis provides a comprehensive view of the archaeological resources located around Brookville Lake, as well as an overall management plan regarding the care and significance of each recorded site and the reservoir as a whole.Brookville Lake, constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, opened in 1975. The main functions of Brookville Lake are flood control, water supply, recreation, and resource management. The total area encompassed within the reservoir is 11,185 acres, with the lake comprising 5,260 acres.To construct an archaeological resource management plan for the Brookville Lake Reservoir, extensive background research on all archaeological work within the Lake area was completed. This included both the early antiquarian work and more recent contract archaeological surveys done in the Whitewater River drainage. The examination of recorded historic and prehistoric archaeological sites was also discussed because of the potential historical significance of the property.Taking into account all previous work done in the reservoir and the incompleteness of the data regarding the presence of archaeological resources within the property, a research design was formulated for the completion of an archaeological survey.Finally, the development of management possibilities for the archaeological resources took into account legislation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' master plan of development for the reservoir, the most recent plan dating to 1986.
