Center for Archaeological Research




On March 2 and 3, 1977, an archaeological survey of the area surrounding Tule Lake, in Corpus Christi, Texas, was conducted by the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio. The reconnaissance was authorized by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, prior to disposal of fill resulting from harbor dredging activities. Mr. William Sky Eagle of the Corpus Christi office of the Corps provided us with detailed locational information, and Mr. David Espy, a Corpus Christi resident and avocational archaeologist, informed us of local activities and discoveries, as well as opening his own collections of artifacts from the area.

Dr. Thomas Hester, Center for Archaeological Research, was Principal Investigator. Field work was supervised by Stephen Black, with the aid of Andrea Gerstle. Laboratory analysis of artifacts was performed by Andrea Gerstle.
