On June 15, 1977, an archaeological survey was made of a 70-acre park at Live Oak, Texas. During the survey, a prehistoric site (41 BX 435) was found and recorded. Recommendations were made for testin9 the site to evaluate its importance and possible eligibility for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. On June 17 and 18, limited testing of the site was conducted. The results of the survey and subsequent test excavations are presented here.
The archaeological work at the park was done under a contract between the City of Live Oak (Mr. Ronald Dunlap, City Manager) and the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio.
The original survey was conducted by Stephen L. Black, and the subsequent testing was done by Erwin Roemer, Jr., Augustine Frkuska and Elizabeth Frkuska. Field work was done under the supervision of Dr. Thomas R. Hester, Director of the Center, and Jack D. Eaton, Assistant Director.
