A Phase I Archaeological Survey Of The Proposed Tennessee Riverpark, Battery Place Extension, R. Bruce Council Feb 1997

A Phase I Archaeological Survey Of The Proposed Tennessee Riverpark, Battery Place Extension, R. Bruce Council

Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology Reports

Interpretive historical research suggests that along the proposed right of way of the Battery Place extension of the Tennessee Riverpark Spanish explorer Tristan de Luna y Arellano, in company with Coosa Indians, raided two towns of the Napochie chiefdom in 1560. Cherokee Indian internment camps may have been present in the project area during the Removal, 1835-1838, and burials of Cherokees may be present. Confederate soldiers also may have been interred in the project area in 1862-63, although these remains were nominally reinterred in Citizens Cemetery in 1867. The project area was utilized for industrial purposes in the late 19th ...

Test Excavations At The Spanish Governor's Palace, San Antonio, Texas, Anne A. Fox Jan 1997

Test Excavations At The Spanish Governor's Palace, San Antonio, Texas, Anne A. Fox

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

Test excavations were carried out in October 1996 by the Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio in front of the Spanish Governor's Palace in Military Plaza in downtown San Antonio. Planned for the retrieval of information on the depth and present condition of the foundations of the building, the excavations also recovered important information on previous occupation of the site and construction methods used when the palace was built.


Limited Testing At The Bob Turbeville Site (41wd382), Wood County, Texas, Eric A. Schroeder Jan 1997

Limited Testing At The Bob Turbeville Site (41wd382), Wood County, Texas, Eric A. Schroeder

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

The Bob Turbeville site (41WD382) is an Early to Middle Caddoan period occupation on the upper Sabine River, likely a small farmstead or hamlet containing a trash midden and possible house areas. Previous work at the site had identified a human burial with associated grave goods. Radiocarbon analysis suggests that the occupation of the site dates to around A.D. 1165 to 1290.

Work at the Turbeville site was conducted in October 1995 by Paul Price Associates, Inc. under the auspices of the Antiquities Code of Texas in association with a proposed expansion of the existing wastewater treatment facilities at ...


A Study In Frustration: Analysis Of Human Remains Removed From The Coker Mound Site (41cs1), Sharon Mccormick Derrick Jan 1997

A Study In Frustration: Analysis Of Human Remains Removed From The Coker Mound Site (41cs1), Sharon Mccormick Derrick

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

Human skeletal remains were removed from the Coker Mound site (41CS1) by unidentified excavators sometime immediately prior to the Texas Archeological Society (TAS) meetings of 1995. Mike Turner, a Steward in the Office of the State Archeologists' Texas Archeological Steward Network and a founding member of the Friends of Northeast Texas Archaeology, was able to retrieve a cranium, mandible; and six cervical vertebrae from this collection for a brief period, bringing them to the TAS meetings. It was his dedication that provided the opportunity for these remains to be studied.


A Reevaluation Of A Lithic Procurement Site (41bx63) In Converse, Bexar County, Texas, Kevin J. Gross Jan 1997

A Reevaluation Of A Lithic Procurement Site (41bx63) In Converse, Bexar County, Texas, Kevin J. Gross

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

An archaeological survey of 35 acres in Converse, Texas, in northeastern Bexar County, relocated lithic site 4IBX63. Extensive shovel testing demonstrated that virtually no subsurface material was present. The surface site was collected and the chipped stone and raw material analyzed. The analysis suggests local chert cobbles were being selected for early and middle stages of tool manufacture at the site. A single diagnostic artifact, a Scallorn point, indicates that site use included the Late Prehistoric period.


Archaeological Monitoring Of A Sidewalk Construction Project In Landa Park, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, John W. Arnn Iii Jan 1997

Archaeological Monitoring Of A Sidewalk Construction Project In Landa Park, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, John W. Arnn Iii

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

In February 1996, the Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted monitoring for the construction of a handicap ramp in Landa Park, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas. The work-required by the Texas Historic Commission-was performed under contract with the city of New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department. The excavation of the footings for the handicap ramp covered an area roughly 2 x 5 m and was less than 70 cm in depth. Over 2,600 prehistoric artifacts were uncovered including bone, fIre-cracked rock, mussel shell, numerous platform and nonplatform flakes, cores, unifaces, several bifaces ...

This volume, the second of the series, contains a complete description of the archaeological excavations and a distributional analysis of the results, written by Kenneth Wright, the archaeologist in charge of the fieldwork. Also included in ...


An Assessment Of Prehistoric Sites 41cp228 And 41cp229 Camp County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode Jan 1997

An Assessment Of Prehistoric Sites 41cp228 And 41cp229 Camp County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode

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

The road along which sites 41CP228 and 229 occur is F.M. 1520 (Fig. 1 and Fig. 2), with the limits of improvements to it being from 0.8 mi. north of Loop 179 to 0.7 mi. north of Walkers Creek--a length of approximately 1.25 miles. This is a particularly dangerous stretch of roadway with curves at Walkers Creek and its tributary to the north. Along this stretch in recent years several people have died in automobile accidents, most recently during the course of the fieldwork in September, 1996. The proposed work will realign the roadway to eliminate ...


Test Excavations At Prehistoric Site 41sm203, Smith County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode Jan 1997

Test Excavations At Prehistoric Site 41sm203, Smith County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode

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

Site 41SM203 is a prehistoric campsite situated along the southwestern outskirts of the city of Tyler, Smith County, Texas. The site occupies the apex and lower slopes of a north-south trending ridge that runs for several miles. The lower part of the site lies relatively near springs located along the headwaters of Butler Creek. These springs or similar ones are thought to have been a major attraction of this locale, but significant cultural deposits were not found near them or in any part of the site subject to the investigation. The cultural materials that were found indicate sporadic and nonintensive ...


Significance Testing At Preshistoric Archeological Site 41rk195, Rusk County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode, Sterling Hays, Paul Maslyk, Christine G. Ward, Jesus Gonzalez Jan 1997

Significance Testing At Preshistoric Archeological Site 41rk195, Rusk County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode, Sterling Hays, Paul Maslyk, Christine G. Ward, Jesus Gonzalez

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

In May 1994, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) conducted extensive test excavations at archeological site 41RK195. Located in the path of proposed Loop 571 around Henderson, the site had already been seriously impacted by a sand quarrying operation. Lying atop a large hill near the confluence of Bromley Creek and Flanigan Branch, site 41RK195, now almost totally destroyed, is believed to have been a major site of the region. The small number of artifacts found, in addition to a few seen in private collections, indicates a long history of human habitation for this multicomponent site, including occupation of the ...


Final Report Of Test Excavations Along Loop 375 South-Central El Paso County, Texas, Christine G. Ward, Barbara J. Hickman Jan 1997

Final Report Of Test Excavations Along Loop 375 South-Central El Paso County, Texas, Christine G. Ward, Barbara J. Hickman

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

Archeologists from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) conducted test excavations seven prehistoric archeological sites along Loop 375 in south-central El Paso County during December and January of 1995. Results of the test excavations indicate that the seven sites, namely, 41EP4847, 41EP4823, 41EP4819, 41EP4825, 41EP4826, 41EP4827, and 41EP4829 do not meet the established eligibility criteria for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). This assessment is based on the observed absence of intact, non-redundant subsurface remains at the sites.


Archaeological Investigations At The Landa Park Golf Course, New Braunfels, Texas, John W. Arnn Iii, C. Britt Bousman Jan 1997

Archaeological Investigations At The Landa Park Golf Course, New Braunfels, Texas, John W. Arnn Iii, C. Britt Bousman

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

In April 1996, the Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio was contracted by the city of New Braunfels to perform monitoring and testing to determine the impact of planned construction on cultural resources in Landa Park. The work was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 1682. The planned development called for the construction of a golf cart bam, and subsurface excavations for one electrical line and two waterlines to supply the bam with power and water. Shovel testing was performed on the proposed site of the golf cart bam and along transects for the ...


Archaeological Testing At Crook's Park In San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, Diane A. Cargill, Maureen Brown Jan 1997

Archaeological Testing At Crook's Park In San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, Diane A. Cargill, Maureen Brown

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

Archaeological testing at site 41HY261 was conducted from March 26-31, 1997, by the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio, for the city of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department. Testing demonstrates that 41HY261 contains deep, intact, stratified subsurface cultural deposits. Collectively, the artifacts recovered to date represent ca. 5,000 years of hunter-and-gatherer activity. Site 41HY261 has the potential to contribute significantly to the prehistory of the region, and is therefore recommended as eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.


Archaeological Testing Of The New Plaza At Mission San Francisco De La Espada (41bx4), San Antonio, Texas, Kevin J. Gross Jan 1997

Archaeological Testing Of The New Plaza At Mission San Francisco De La Espada (41bx4), San Antonio, Texas, Kevin J. Gross

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

In October 1996, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio completed archaeological investigations of the eastern portion of the interior compound of Mission San Francisco de la Espada. The archaeological testing was undertaken in advance of the construction of a movie set in the New Plaza of the mission. The staging involved setting up approximately 100 tents, using eight-inch stakes driven about six inches into the ground. Twenty-six shovel tests were excavated across the plaza to locate any culturally sensitive areas which might be affected by the movie set.

Pre-1780 material from the ...


Archaeological Investigations At Promontory Pointe At Stone Oak Ii, Bexar County, Texas, Owen A. Ford Jan 1997

Archaeological Investigations At Promontory Pointe At Stone Oak Ii, Bexar County, Texas, Owen A. Ford

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

The Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted a pedestrian survey and subsurface testing for cultural resources at the proposed Promontory Pointe at Stone Oak II planned unit development, in northern Bexar County. The project was conducted under contract with Great America Companies on October 23 and 25, 1996. Upon completion of the survey and 11 subsurface tests, CAR determined that a light scatter of chipped stone debris was present, but no cultural resources would be impacted along the easements planned for trenching for sewer pipe installation.

In August and September 1996, the Center for Archaeological Research conducted archival research on the proposed Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center Expansion in downtown San Antonio, Texas. This area, now in HemisFair Park, was once part of the agricultural fields for the Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo). This report presents a general history of the area, a review of previous archaeological research in HemisFair Park, detailed archival research on nineteenth-century buildings known to be present in the construction area, and recommendations for further archaeological investigations in preparation for the construction of the Convention Center. Also, all known photographs ...


Historical And Archaeological Research Of The Hampton Inn Property In Downtown San Antonio, Marcie Renner Jan 1997

Historical And Archaeological Research Of The Hampton Inn Property In Downtown San Antonio, Marcie Renner

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

The Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted a three-phase investigation of property belonging to Hampton Inns, Inc., in downtown San Antonio, Texas. The first phase, a study of archival records and previous investigations, undertaken in 1989, showed that portions of the Alamo Acequia Madre ran through the property. During Phase II, in 1990, CAR placed five backhoe trenches to assess the remains of the acequia. These investigations showed the acequia to have been disturbed by earlier installation of a storm drain. CAR archaeologists monitored construction activities during Phase III in early 1995. Although ...


Index To The First Five Years (1993-1997) Of The Journal Of Northeast Texas Archaeology, Timothy K. Perttula Jan 1997

Index To The First Five Years (1993-1997) Of The Journal Of Northeast Texas Archaeology, Timothy K. Perttula

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

With considerable help and assistance along the way, the Friends of Northeast Texas Archaeology have been able to successfully publish over the last five years (1993-1997) a journal of archaeological research concerning the prehistory and history of Northeast Texas. During 1993, the publication was entitled Notes on Northeast Texas Archaeology, as our intention was simply to publish an occasional journal of papers and book reviews. When it became apparent (in part through the efforts of the East Texas Archeological Conference, which also began in 1993) that there were many worthy papers on Northeast Texas archaeology that warranted publication, the title ...
