Geoarchaeological studies, although more commonly used in conjunction with prehistoric environmental reconstruction, have utility for historical archaeological studies, too. This paper is a summary of how a particular geoarchaeological research was used in conjunction with an on-going search for George Rogers Clark's Fort Jefferson. A geological test in the area of Fort Jefferson was conducted and has allowed us to reconstruct the late 18th century landforms and thus to suggest a more likely location for the site.
