La Villita Earthworks (41bx677): San Antonio, Texas A Preliminary Report Of Investigations Of Mexican Siege Works At The Battle Of The Alamo, Joseph H. Labadie Jan 1986

La Villita Earthworks (41bx677): San Antonio, Texas A Preliminary Report Of Investigations Of Mexican Siege Works At The Battle Of The Alamo, Joseph H. Labadie

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

La Villita Earthworks is located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, Texas. The site appears to have been formed initially in late February 1836, by Mexican soldiers with General Santa Anna’s invading forces during the second battle of the Alamo. The outcome of this battle has been the topic for literally thousands of books over the past 149 years. Now, for the first time, archaeological evidence has been discovered which provides the first real glimpse at the Mexican side of the battle of the Alamo. The ramifications of the discovery are yet to be fully realized. Military historians ...

Archaeological Investigations Within The Right-Of-Way Of Ih 27 At Yellowhouse Draw Lubbock County, Texas, Jerry Henderson Jan 1986

Archaeological Investigations Within The Right-Of-Way Of Ih 27 At Yellowhouse Draw Lubbock County, Texas, Jerry Henderson

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

Machine testing was conducted by the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation in a small area bounded by the right-of-way of IH 27 on the north side of Yellowhouse Draw in Lubbock County, Texas. The area was tested because of the high probability of buried cultural materials; however, no archaeological materials were encountered. Soil deposits equating to the Archaic and Ceramic Periods at the Lubbock Lake Site (Strata 3, 4, and 5 at Lubbock Lake) were present but they did not contain remains of a material culture.


An Archaeological Survey Of Converse City Park, Bexar County, Texas, Ralph Snavely Jan 1986

An Archaeological Survey Of Converse City Park, Bexar County, Texas, Ralph Snavely

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

On March 3-4, 1986, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), conducted a survey of approximately 25 acres, comprising the Converse City Park on the south edge of Converse in Bexar County, Texas. The survey was required to comply with federal regulations. One area within the development zone was found to have a light surface scatter of cultural materials. This lithic scatter was recorded and assigned a permanent state site designation (41BX698). An intensive search of the site area failed to produce any concentration of cultural materials other than the one area. No ...


The Clemente And Herminia Hinojosa Site, 41jw8: A Toyah Horizon Campsite In Southern Texas, Stephen L. Black Jan 1986

The Clemente And Herminia Hinojosa Site, 41jw8: A Toyah Horizon Campsite In Southern Texas, Stephen L. Black

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

Site 41JW8 is a major prehistoric occupation site located along Chiltipin Creek in Jim Wells County, in southern Texas. Excavations at the site in 1981 recovered a single component that can be linked with the Toyah horizon. Radiocarbon dating of three fire features places the occupation to around A.D. 1350-1400. The excavation of 82 m2 clustered in blocks produced an abundance of well-preserved data. Special studies of faunal and botanical remains and analyses of artifacts and cultural refuse distributions provide the basis for addressing various research problems. The site is shown to be a base camp where hunting and ...

Test Excavations Of Site 41nl20 Nolan County, Texas, Jerry Henderson

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

Site 41NL20 is located on the south terrace of Sweetwater Creek at County Road 216 in Nolan County, Texas. Archaeological testing, con-fined to the county road right-of-way and a temporary 50-ft. easement on the east side of the county road, was conducted by the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT) in 1983 and 1986 and produced a small quantity of chert debitage and a partially intact hearth. No prehistoric tools were recovered and no concentrations of debitage or activity areas were discerned. The main portion of the site appears to lie on private property east of the tested ...


Excavations At Site 41ck193: Cultural Resource Investigations Along Sh 158 West Of The Town Of Edith Coke County, Texas, Alan J. Wormser Jan 1986

Excavations At Site 41ck193: Cultural Resource Investigations Along Sh 158 West Of The Town Of Edith Coke County, Texas, Alan J. Wormser

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

Test excavations were conducted at Site 41CK193 by members of the cultural resources staff at the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT). The excavation was completed between November 17 and 19, 1986, as part of a road improvement project along SH 158 in northwestern Coke County. A few cutting implements and a blade core were found by Wayne C. Young of the SDHPT in a general surface collection which he made in September of 1986. Subsequently, four 1 by 1 meter test units and a single 2 by 2 meter test unit were excavated by hand to ...


Test Excavations At Site 41lk269 Live Oak County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode Jan 1986

Test Excavations At Site 41lk269 Live Oak County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode

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

Archaeological site 41LK269 is a prehistoric open campsite located on a Pleistocene terrace remnant of the Nueces River near George West, Texas. The small portion of the site which remains within the right-of-way of US Highway 59 produced a meager sample of aboriginal materials. The cultural remains, devoid of diagnostic artifacts, consist of lithic artifacts and fire-cracked rock. The absence of diagnostic materials precludes an accurate assessment of the occupation time frame. The recovery indicates that that portion of the site which occurs within the highway right-of-way does not merit nomination to the National Register of Historic Places or designation ...

Archaeological Testing Of Historic Sites To Be Affected By Construction Of Ih 410 Through The San Antonio Missions National Park City Of San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, John W. Clark, Jr.

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

The State Department of Highways and Public Transportation plans to add access lanes along segments of Loop 410 (IH 410) in the City of San Antonio, Texas. The project traverses the acequia systems of Missions San Francisco de la Espada and San Juan Capistrano and also is adjacent to an historic site, 41BX252, which is the possible location of some historical structures. Backhoe trenching and hand excavation, conducted December 8 and 9, 1986, produced no nineteenth century or Spanish Colonial materials, and also revealed that the segments of the acequias and desagues (laterals) within the project right-of-way had been disturbed ...


An Archaeological Survey And Monitoring Of The Razing Of The Acuna Furniture And Music Company Building, Downtown San Antonio, Texas, I. Waynne Cox Jan 1986

An Archaeological Survey And Monitoring Of The Razing Of The Acuna Furniture And Music Company Building, Downtown San Antonio, Texas, I. Waynne Cox

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

In September 1985, the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, was requested to conduct an investigation of the archaeological potential of the Acuña Furniture and Music Company building located at 125 North Flores Street, San Antonio, Texas. An archival search, to determine the construction period of the present building and possible prior structures, was conducted, and an on-site inspection was made. Both indicated that no historic resources would be affected by the demolition of the building. The demolition of the building was monitored to assure that no artifacts were revealed. No further work is recommended ...

Archaeological Studies At The Cps Butler Lignite Prospect, Bastrop And Lee Counties, Texas, 1983, Kenneth M. Brown

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

In May and June 1983, archaeologists from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, performed a pedestrian survey intended to provide 100% coverage of 288 hectares of land in the CPS Butler lignite prospect. The survey area was divided into five separate tracts in Bastrop and Lee Counties; four of these tracts had been examined in an earlier reconnaissance-level survey, and the present survey was intended in large part to emphasize heavily vegetated areas not thoroughly covered by the earlier survey. Five sites were located; all had some prehistoric cultural debris, but two were chiefly ...


Archaeological Testing At Sunrise Canyon Subdivision (41bx441), Universal City, Texas, Kenneth M. Brown Jan 1986

Archaeological Testing At Sunrise Canyon Subdivision (41bx441), Universal City, Texas, Kenneth M. Brown

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

From January 3-7, 1984, a field crew from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, consisting of Kenneth Brown, Ralph Snavely, and Margaret Greco spent approximately 12 person-days testing archaeological deposits at Sunrise Canyon subdivision (Unit 2) in Universal City, Bexar County, for Sitterle & Companies, the developer.

No further field work is recommended at site 41 BX 441. While further excavation, at least in the vicinity of Test Pit 1, might augment the collection of artifacts from the site, the geologic setting indicates that the context of deposition would be much the same as a ...
