Archaeological Testing Of The Cave At Site 41bx22 Bexar County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode Jan 1985

Archaeological Testing Of The Cave At Site 41bx22 Bexar County, Texas, Glenn T. Goode

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

The Rogers Site, 41BX22, is located on the east bank of a tributary to Salado Creek in northern Bexar County and has three major occupation or activity areas: a terrace-bench site with a burned rock midden, a small cave, and quarry areas on the bluff overlooking the bench and cave sites.

The terrace site was test-excavated by students in the mid-1960s. Primarily Late Prehistoric and Late Archaic materials were recovered with the Middle Archaic and possibly the Early Archaic being represented. Relic hunters have since thoroughly destroyed this portion of the site which lies just north of the FM 1604 ...

The Panther Springs Creek Site: Cultural Change And Continuity Within The Upper Salado Creek Watershed, South-Central Texas, Stephen L. Black, Joachim Mcgraw

The excavations and subsequent analysis of the Panther Creek Springs site, 41BX228, a multicomponent prehistoric open occupation site in south-central Texas, are documented in this report. The investigations at 41BX228 partially mitigate the loss of cultural information caused by looters and potentially by a proposed Soil Conservation Service flood control project. The field investigations carried out in 1979 included mapping, testing, backhoe trenching, and the excavation of several block areas. Large quantities of comparatively well-preserved cultural materials were recovered and analyzed including: lithic, ceramic, and bone artifacts as well as faunal and botanical remains. Major aspects of the analysis and ...

10th Street Substation Excavation Of The Acequia Madre (41bx8), San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, I. Waynne Cox

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

The acequias or irrigation systems were an important factor in the early history of San Antonio. One of the earliest of these was the Acequia Madre (41 BX 8) or Mother Ditch. Recently, proposed construction by City Public Service at the 10th Street Substation was expected to encounter the course of the acequia, thus requiring archaeological investigation. Excavation of a section of the acequia with a backhoe and archival research revealed new information about the history of this ancient waterway.


Archaeological Testing Of Site 41bx679 Bexar County, Texas, Wayne C. Young Jan 1985

Archaeological Testing Of Site 41bx679 Bexar County, Texas, Wayne C. Young

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

Testing of Site 41BX679 along Farm to Market Highway 2696 in Bexar County, Texas, to determine eligibility for inclusion within the National Register of Historic Places, cultural context, and archaeological significance was undertaken in April 1985. The site is located along a slight rise between Cibolo Creek and Muesebach Creek in northern Bexar County. It has been disturbed by previous construction or cutting of fire lines along Camp Bullis military reservation. Results of testing indicate that 41BX679 contained a minimal prehistoric component of unknown age. An intact hearth was uncovered but associated lithic debitage was almost totally absent. Evidence recovered ...
