This report will present the results of an archaeological survey conducted in Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas, during the summer of 1976. The specific purpose of this survey was to compile an inventory of prehistoric resources in that portion of the Park known as the High Country, the only portion of the Park which had not yet been subjected to a comprehensive, on-the-ground archaeological reconnaissance. Data gathered during the survey were analyzed and interpreted in the light of existing cultural frameworks for the Park and surrounding region. Criteria of significance and criteria of effect were applied to all documented archaeological sites and other evidence of prehistoric activity, to assist the National Park Service in complying with the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and Executive Order 11593 of May 13, 1971.
