Archaeological Investigations At The De Zavala Point For The Proposed Penn-Texas Shoreline Improvement Project, Harris County, Texas, Daniel R. Potter Jan 1991

Archaeological Investigations At The De Zavala Point For The Proposed Penn-Texas Shoreline Improvement Project, Harris County, Texas, Daniel R. Potter

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

In May 1990, archaeologists for the Center of Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, conducted a surface survey and subsurface testing program on De Zavala Point, a small tongue of land sticking out into the Houston ship channel in Harris County. The locality has been selected for the construction of a large-vessel docking facility. Survey and testing activities were performed in order to evaluate known archaeological sites and to locate any additional archaeological remains which might be affected by dock construction and operation. In addition, the state of preservation of the important De Zavala historic cemetery (41 ...


A Perspective On Arkansas Basin And Ozark Highland Prehistory, J. Daniel Rogers Jan 1991

A Perspective On Arkansas Basin And Ozark Highland Prehistory, J. Daniel Rogers

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

It is, from time to time, valuable to reassess and perhaps shed new light on long-held perspectives. In "The 'Northern Caddoan Area' was not Caddoan," Frank Schambach provides a provocative reinterpretation of the archaeology of the Arkansas Basin and Ozark Highland regions of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri. While certain comments in this paper have merit and deserve deeper consideration, the central theme and supporting arguments are severely flawed, both from conceptual and data points of view.

Schambach's central argument is that there were no Caddoans in the Arkansas Basin and Ozark Highlands north of Spiro. To make this point ...


Testing Of The San Jose Mission Acequia, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Bexar County, Texas, Anne A. Fox, I. Waynne Cox Jan 1991

Testing Of The San Jose Mission Acequia, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Bexar County, Texas, Anne A. Fox, I. Waynne Cox

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

The purpose of this project was to locate and identify the acequia madre, or main irrigation ditch, where it ran between the east wall of Mission San Jose and San Jose Drive and to trace out the location of another ditch, part of which was found during road construction in the area in 1981. After confirmation of the location of the main ditch through deed and archival research, a backhoe was used to precisely locate the ditch on the site. The second ditch was relocated and its course followed to the north boundary of the park property in this area ...


Notes From The Northwest Louisiana Regional Archaeology Program, Jeff Girard Jan 1991

Notes From The Northwest Louisiana Regional Archaeology Program, Jeff Girard

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

During the spring of 1990 a project was started by the Northwest Louisiana Regional Archaeology Program to re-locate and update information on sites in northwestern Louisiana initially investigated by Dr. Clarence Webb of Shreveport. A summary of information from several sites likely to be of interest to Caddo archaeologists is presented here.

The Regional Archaeology Program i.a jointly sponsored by Northwestern State University and the Louisiana Division of Archaeology. The primary purpose of the program is to record and update information about archaeological sites in the region located on private and state lands. The program also will compile and ...


The Cheatwood Place (41rr181), A Midden Mound Along Little Mustang Creek, Red River County, Texas, Steve Gaither, Timothy K. Perttula, Gary Cheatwood Jan 1991

The Cheatwood Place (41rr181), A Midden Mound Along Little Mustang Creek, Red River County, Texas, Steve Gaither, Timothy K. Perttula, Gary Cheatwood

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

The Cheatwood Place is a multi-component midden mound located on an upland projection at the confluence of Christopher Branch and Little Mustang Creek, about 1.5 kilometers north of the Sulphur River. The site has thick midden deposits with excellent fauna! and shell preservation, and promises to contribute important information on several periods of Sulphur River prehistory. The archaeological record in this part of the Sulphur River basin is not well known at present.

Investigations at the Cheatwood Place site have been limited to surface collections, and the excavation by Cheatwood of a single 1 x 1 meter test unit ...


Alcoa #1 (41an87): A Frankston Phase Settlement Along Mound Prairie Creek, Anderson County, Texas, Clyde Amick, Ed Furman, Timothy K. Perttula, James E. Bruseth, Bonnie C. Yates Jan 1991

Alcoa #1 (41an87): A Frankston Phase Settlement Along Mound Prairie Creek, Anderson County, Texas, Clyde Amick, Ed Furman, Timothy K. Perttula, James E. Bruseth, Bonnie C. Yates

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

The ALCOA #1 (41AN87) site is a Frankston Phase (ca. A.D. 1400-1650) site located on a high alluvial terrace of Mound Prairie Creek, about seven kilometers northeast of Palestine, Texas. Mound Prairie Creek, a perennial stream, flows southeast to east across the county and drains into the Neches River. The site is approximately 10 meters above the Mound Prairie Creek floodplain, and the creek channel is 300 meters to the south.

Although the investigations at the site have been rather limited to date, it appears that the ALCOA #1 site is a single component Frankston Phase homestead, or possibly ...


Preliminary Report On An Archeological Survey Of Stormy Point, Jim Hardey, Claude Mccrocklin Jan 1991

Preliminary Report On An Archeological Survey Of Stormy Point, Jim Hardey, Claude Mccrocklin

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

This is a report on an archaeological survey of the point of land that extends south into Caddo Lake opposite Mooringsport, Louisiana. The nineteenth century name for this area was Stormy Point, and the area into which Stormy Point extends was called Ferry Lake in 1839. The primary purpose of the survey was to find eighteenth century and early nineteenth century Caddo Indian sites, with the focal point of the survey being the thirty acre southwest tip of the point; other areas were looked at but not thoroughly investigated. Prehistoric Indian and early Anglo-American sites found while surveying for the ...


Hudnall-Pirtle Site: An Early Caddoan Mound Complex In Northeast Texas, James E. Burseth Jan 1991

Hudnall-Pirtle Site: An Early Caddoan Mound Complex In Northeast Texas, James E. Burseth

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

The Hudnall-Pirtle (41RK4) site is situated on a large T-1 alluvial terrace of the Sabine River in northern Rusk County of Texas. This part of Texas, comm.only referred to as Northeast Texas, is part of the Southern Gulf Coastal Plain, a relatively level, sloping plain formed by pre-Pleistocene embayments of the Gulf of Mexico. From a biogeographical perspective, the site is located in the Oak-Hickory-Pine Forest. This area represents the western extension of the Southern coniferous forests, and is dominated by shortleaf, longleaf, slash, and loblolly pine trees. In the floodplains of rivers and major creeks of Northeast Texas ...


Coles Creek Culture And The Trans-Mississippi South, Frank F. Schambach Jan 1991

Coles Creek Culture And The Trans-Mississippi South, Frank F. Schambach

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

Certain Lower Mississippi Valley (LMV) traits, mostly Coles Creek ceramic traits, but also traits such as temple mounds and certain mortuary patterns, appear at Late Fourche Maline and Early Caddo sites in the Trans-Mississippi South, particularly at sites in the Red River Valley in northwest Louisiana and southwest Arkansas. Explaining how these traits got there and understanding their role in the development of Caddo culture is one of the basic problems in the archaeology of this area. The conventional explanation has long been that they represent a full scale intrusion of Coles Creek culture into the Trans-Mississippi South. Thus Michael ...


Excavations At The Mcdonald Site, 41bx794, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, I. Waynne Cox Jan 1991

Excavations At The Mcdonald Site, 41bx794, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, I. Waynne Cox

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

In July 1989, the Center for Archaeological Research entered into a contract with the San Antonio Housing Authority to provide archival research and field investigations for the area to be impacted by additions to the Housing Authority Building and parking on portions of New City Blocks 2553 and 2969. The archival research revealed that the area contained some portions of the San Pedro acequia and the site of the John Stewart McDonald homestead. The acequia had been extensively investigated by the Center in 1979 and 1981, therefore only limited investigations were directed toward the later modified channel, with the primary ...


Archaeological Investigations At The Ruiz Family Property (41bx795), San Antonio, Texas, Herbert G. Uecker, Frances K. Meskill, I. Waynne Cox Jan 1991

Archaeological Investigations At The Ruiz Family Property (41bx795), San Antonio, Texas, Herbert G. Uecker, Frances K. Meskill, I. Waynne Cox

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

Pursuant to an agreement with M. J. Boyle General Contractor, Inc., in early October 1989, an archaeological crew from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, investigated a portion of what is now the San Antonio City Hall Annex property. When the crew began its work, the area in question was soon to be impacted by the construction of an auxiliary electrical generator fuel tank to be built for the annex building. In the mid-1700s, the property had become the residence of the Ruiz family, one of the first families to settle in San Antonio ...


Archival Investigation Of The Pyron Homestead (41bx278), New City Block 7657, San Antonio, Texas, I. Waynne Cox Jan 1991

Archival Investigation Of The Pyron Homestead (41bx278), New City Block 7657, San Antonio, Texas, I. Waynne Cox

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

The Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, conducted an archival investigation on a portion of New City Block 7657 in southeast San Antonio for the Texas Trust Savings Bank of Marble Falls, Texas. The property contained the site of the historic Pyron House and thought to possibly also contain the buried remains of the San Jose acequia. The study revealed that the homestead was probably constructed in 1849, and although recently destroyed, the foundation remains in the ground. The research further revealed that the acequia did not pass through the property under study, but instead ...


Archaeological Survey For Two Pipeline Crossings At Venado Creek, Jackson County, Texas, Herbert G. Uecker Jan 1991

Archaeological Survey For Two Pipeline Crossings At Venado Creek, Jackson County, Texas, Herbert G. Uecker

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

The Center for Archaeological Research at The University of Texas at San Antonio, investigated the cultural resource potential of two proposed pipeline crossings along Venado Creek in Jackson County, Texas, for Mobil Exploration & Producing U. S. Inc. Surface surveys and shovel tests were performed at both crossings during the investigation. No cultural materials were encountered within the proposed impact zones, which were observed to have been substantially disturbed in recent decades by natural and artificial activities. Thus, no further archaeological work is recommended prior to or during the pending construction.


Archival And Historical Research For The San Pedro Creek Channel Improvement Project: The 1989-1990 Investigations, Herbert G. Uecker Jan 1991

Archival And Historical Research For The San Pedro Creek Channel Improvement Project: The 1989-1990 Investigations, Herbert G. Uecker

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

The history, cultural resources, and archaeological potential of a portion of San Pedro Creek in the vicinity of the Five Points intersection in central San Antonio were investigated and evaluated. Archival sources were consulted, personal interviews conducted, and an on-site inspection of the area was made. Based on the archival research, the history of the area was divided into several distinct periods. Data from primary sources are summarized and cross-referenced in an appendix.


Archaeological Testing For A Proposed Landfill Expansion (Phase Ii) City Of Del Rio, Val Verde County, Texas, Jack D. Eaton, Ronald W. Burkett, Herbert G. Uecker, James T. Abbott Jan 1991

Archaeological Testing For A Proposed Landfill Expansion (Phase Ii) City Of Del Rio, Val Verde County, Texas, Jack D. Eaton, Ronald W. Burkett, Herbert G. Uecker, James T. Abbott

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

During September 1989, a pedestrian survey was conducted within a I~S-acre tract acquired by the City of Del Rio, Val Verde County, for a landfill expansion project. The surface reconnaissance recorded one prehistoric site, 41 VV 1251. As a result, recommendation was made for Phase II subsurface testing.

The Phase II subsurface testing, which included a geomorphic study, was accomplished during February 1990. Cultural resources were recovered indicating presence at site 41 VV 1251 from the Late Paleo-Indian period to the Late Archaic period. However, the site was determined to be almost totally deflated. The geomorphological tests verified this ...

What Ship Goes There: The Flood Narratives In The Gilgamesh Epic And Genesis Considered In Light Of Ancient Near Eastern Temple Ideology, Steven W. Holloway Dec 1990

What Ship Goes There: The Flood Narratives In The Gilgamesh Epic And Genesis Considered In Light Of Ancient Near Eastern Temple Ideology, Steven W. Holloway

Steven W Holloway

Despite efforts made to understand the Mesopotamian and Genesis flood narratives as cosmogonies, the architecture and religious symbolism of the arks remain a scholarly embarrassment. Comparisons of the design of the arks described in Gilgamesh XI and Genesis 6—8 traditionally have focused on the sharp incompatibility of their dimensions. I shall attempt to demonstrate by a close


Oberlin's Sierra Leone Saltcellar: Documenting A Bicultural Dialogue, Kathy Curnow Dec 1990

Oberlin's Sierra Leone Saltcellar: Documenting A Bicultural Dialogue, Kathy Curnow

Kathy Curnow

Oberlin College's Allen Art Museum owns an ivory saltcellar made by a West African artist for a Portuguese client in the late 15th or early 16th century in Sierra Leone. The artist had to consider what foreign and local features to include in this export piece; it conforms in shape to European cups or chalices and depicts some Portuguese, but also includes what appears to be a local motif of dogs confronting snakes. The facial style is decidedly local, resembling the prognathous faces of contemporaneous stone sculptures. The saltcellar is topped with an image of the kneeling Virgin Mary ...
