Current Research: Archaeological Investigations At The Shackleford Creek Site (41sm494), Smith County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula, Bo Nelson 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

Current Research: Archaeological Investigations At The Shackleford Creek Site (41sm494), Smith County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula, Bo Nelson

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

An archaeological survey in 2018 of the proposed Shackleford Creek Residential Development, a federally permitted project, in the upper Angelina River basin in East Texas by Tejas Archaeology identified the ancestral Caddo Shackleford Creek site (41SM494). Because the site was only investigated with a few shovel tests during the archaeological survey, although sufficient to identify the site extent and general characteristics of deposit depth and artifact content, but appeared to contain intact archaeological deposits of ancestral Caddo age, Nelson and Perttula recommended that the site warranted further evaluation by a plan of test excavations to determine its research potential and ...


The Ancestral Caddo Ceramic Vessel Sherd And Ceramic Pipe Sherd Assemblage From The A. C. Saunders Site (41an19) In The Upper Neches River Basin, Anderson County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

The Ancestral Caddo Ceramic Vessel Sherd And Ceramic Pipe Sherd Assemblage From The A. C. Saunders Site (41an19) In The Upper Neches River Basin, Anderson County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula

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

The A. C. Saunders site (41AN19) is an important ancestral Caddo settlement in the upper Neches River basin in Anderson County in East Texas. The site is one of only a few ancestral Caddo sites with mound features in the upper Neches River basin, particularly those that are known to date after ca. A.D. 1400, but this part of the upper Neches River basin, including its many tributaries, such as Caddo Creek just to the south and west, was widely settled by Caddo farmers after that time. These Caddo groups left behind evidence of year-round occupied settlements with house ...


Current Research: Selected Historic Caddo Allen Phase Vessels From The Deshazo Site (41na13/27) On Bayou Loco, Nacogdoches County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

Current Research: Selected Historic Caddo Allen Phase Vessels From The Deshazo Site (41na13/27) On Bayou Loco, Nacogdoches County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula

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

Continuing with the on-going study of ancestral Caddo ceramic vessels from East Texas Caddo sites, I document three ceramic vessels and a fourth ceramic vessel section from excavations at the Deshazo site (41NA13/27) by The University of Texas at Austin (UT) in 1975-1976. The Deshazo site is the best studied Allen phase settlement in East Texas, and the archaeological investigations there indicates it was a small centralized hamlet of an affiliated group with a series of circular structures and an associated household or family cemetery. Most sites of the Allen phase were apparently occupied for only short periods of ...


Current Research: Update On The Hodges Collection Of Native American Artifacts, Mary Beth D. Trubitt 2020 Arkansas Archeological Survey

Current Research: Update On The Hodges Collection Of Native American Artifacts, Mary Beth D. Trubitt

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

During the 1930s and 1940s, Thomas and Charlotte Hodges of Bismarck, Arkansas, surface collected and excavated artifacts from archaeological sites in Arkansas. Most came from ancestral Caddo sites in the Middle Ouachita River valley in Clark and Hot Spring counties, with a small portion originating from Southeast Arkansas sites. The Hodgeses, along with Vere Huddleston and Robert Proctor of Arkadelphia, were amateur archeologists at a time when there were few professional archeologists working in the state. Philip Phillips of Harvard University photographed some of the Hodges and Huddleston collections during his 1939 Ouachita River Valley survey, and Alex Krieger from ...


Current Research: Preliminary Survey Of The Eastern Half Of The Boxed Spring Site (41ur30), Cambria Haley, Crystal A. Dozier 2020 Department of Anthropology, Wichita State University

Current Research: Preliminary Survey Of The Eastern Half Of The Boxed Spring Site (41ur30), Cambria Haley, Crystal A. Dozier

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

The Boxed Springs site (41UR30) is an Early Caddo site located in East Texas near the Sabine River. This site covers roughly 15.6 acres and contained at least four mounds, middens, and an extended cemetery. The site's location has been known since the late 1950s, with a series of unconnected avocational and professional archaeological investigations as well as unfortunate looting. As one of the few Early Caddo sites in Texas that contain multiple mounds, the Boxed Springs site is poised to provide great insight into Early Caddo mound construction technologies, settlement patterns, subsistence strategies, and trade and exchange.

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

Wilson "Dub" Crook III's paper presented to the East Texas Archeological Conference concerning the use of X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) in sourcing turquoise artifacts sparked an interest in utilizing pXRF to resolve an old Caddo ceramic research question. While XRF has been used in archaeology for more than 60 years, and there have been applications in ceramic studies, a recent review of the 9th Edition of The Archaeology, Bioarchaeology, Ethnohistory, and History of the Caddo Indian Peoples of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas, a comprehensive bibliography, did not yield a single reference to a pXRF study in Caddo ceramics. This ...

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

2019 was an eventful year for our small organization, and for the Caddo Tribe as well. We enjoyed gathering for many events and functions throughout the previous twelve months, but none were more memorable than our trip to the Caddo Mounds State Historic Site near Alto, TX, as many might already know. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support of the Caddo Nation and its members, myself included. Your thoughts, prayers, and support have been heard and received by many and for that I am forever grateful. I offer a special thank you to ...


Ancestral Caddo Fine Ware Vessels From Cahokian Sites In The Mid-Continent, Ca. A.D. 1050-1300, Timothy K. Perttula 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

Ancestral Caddo Fine Ware Vessels From Cahokian Sites In The Mid-Continent, Ca. A.D. 1050-1300, Timothy K. Perttula

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

Ancestral Caddo ceramic vessels and ceramic vessel sherds have been identified from Cahokia and other sites in the U.S. Midwest in contexts dating from ca. A.D. 1050-1300. Archaeological findings from recent work in the East St. Louis Precinct by the Illinois State Archaeological Survey provides a wealth of data on the Mississippian ceramics found there as well as ceramic wares of likely ancestral Caddo manufacture. These Caddo wares comprise less than 0.3 percent of the more than 15,600 vessel batches in the East St. Louis Precinct assemblage, and almost all of them are on local pastes ...
