An Archaeological Survey of the Nichols Creek Channel Modification, Karnes County, Texas
Center for Archaeological Research
During the week of November 17-23, 1974, the author conducted an archaeological survey on Nichols Creek in the town of Kenedy, Karnes County, Texas. The survey was conducted under an agreement between the United States Department of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service (SCS) and The University of Texas at San Antonio, Center for Archaeological Research (a part of Purchase Order No. 427-TX-SCS-75). The project was under the general supervision of Dr. Thomas Hester.
The SCS proposes to channelize a major portion of the creek and of the area where it joins Escondido Creek, to prevent future flooding within the town. The purpose of the survey was to ascertain if any archaeological sites, prehistoric or historic, would be affected by the project, and to obtain an inventory of such sites where they exist. Standard archaeological procedures were followed during the course of the work, including preliminary research and intensive survey in the field.
