Abstract

Testing of Site 41BU49 on FM 696 in Burleson County, Texas, was under-taken in March 1987 to determine eligibility for inclusion within the National Register of Historic Places and to make a recommendation for nomination as a State Archeological Landmark. Testing also was under-taken to determine site depth, cultural context, and archaeological significance. The site is located along a hill slope overlooking Buffalo Creek and consists of a shallow, low-density cultural deposit which may have been impacted by agricultural activities in the past. The exact site limit could not be determined due to heavy vegetation covering most of the area. Results of testing indicate that the portion of 41BU49 to be affected by highway construction contains a very low density of cultural materials and is limited to the upper 20 cm of the soildeposits. Evidence recovered does not support a determination of eligibility for inclusion within the National Register of Historic Places or nomination as a State Archeological Landmark.
