A Guide To Ceramics From Spanish Colonial Sites In Texas, Anne A. Fox, Kristi M. Ulrich Jan 2008

A Guide To Ceramics From Spanish Colonial Sites In Texas, Anne A. Fox, Kristi M. Ulrich

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The descriptions of ceramic types in this publication are compiled primarily as an aid to archaeologists working at missions and presidios in Texas, though it will also help those investigating town and ranch sites occupied during the eighteenth century. It was written with the help of numerous site reports done by archaeologists throughout the twentieth century who have valiantly wrestled with the problems of type identification and dating. The senior author has had the privilege of working with many of them throughout this period, and has developed an intense interest in ceramic identification. Additional help has come from researchers who ...


Inventory Of The Rio Grande Missions: 1772 San Juan Bautista And San Bernardo, Felix D. Almaraz Jr. Jan 1980

Inventory Of The Rio Grande Missions: 1772 San Juan Bautista And San Bernardo, Felix D. Almaraz Jr.

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

This monograph is the second in the series of data-oriented reports resulting from the archaeological and ethnohistorical investigations centered on the Spanish mission complex near the modern town of Guerrero, Coahuila, Mexico. Dr. Felix D. Almaraz of The University of Texas at San Antonio has now prepared two of the volumes in the series, of which this is the second. His translation of the 1772 mission inventories of San Juan Bautista and San Bernardo should be of considerable value to those interested in the Spanish Colonial history of northern Mexico and Texas.

Excavations At The Alamo Shrine (Mission San Antonio De Valero), Jack D. Eaton

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

In March 1977, excavations were conducted in front of Alamo Shrine where flagstone paving was being replaced by the City of San Antonio. The subsurface investigations sampled and described the soil stratigraphy which has accumulated through 2.5 centuries of occupation. The distinctive soil levels contained datable cultural materials which relate to some of the major events which took place from the earliest settlement of Mission San Antonio de Valero through subsequent periods of Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo-Texan occupations. The artifact collections have provided additional information on the material culture of the different ethnic and cultural groups to occupy the ...

Crossroad Of Empire: The Church And State On The Rio Grande Frontier Of Coahuila And Texas 1700-1821, Felix D. Almaraz Jr.

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The monograph being published here is the first in a series of data-oriented reports derived from the archaeological and ethnohistorical project centered on the modern town of Guerrero, Coahuila, Mexico. To our gratification, the project produced a great deal of information. We have decided to meet the problem of adequate publication of the results in two ways. The first is by a volume of essays which aim at synthesizing the various aspects of the data and drawing conclusions from it. This single volume will be published elsewhere and is now (1979) in preparation. The other means of publication is by ...
