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.


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.

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

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.

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

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 ...
