Texas Historical Commission
The following report prepared by Mr. Steven M. Kotter presents the results of archeological assessments conducted at site 41ZP73 in the Falcon Lake State Recreation Area, Zapata County, Texas. This work was sponsored by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as part of the preliminary studies leading to planned developments within the Recreation Area.
Site 41ZP73 was found to contain significant prehistoric archeological deposits which date to both the Late Archaic and the Late Prehistoric periods. The site represents an.example of upland utilization of the area and is assessed to be of sufficient integrity to warrant detailed investigations. Alternatives to achieve compatibility of the planned developments with the cultural resources are presented .
In addition to providing an analysis and discussion of the archeological materials recovered from 41ZP73, Mr. Kotter has prepared an analysis of artifacts collected from nearby sites by Mr. Clarence Shelton. These materials illustrate the range of artifacts associated with the prehistoric occupations in the Falcon Lake region and should prove to be useful to future research dealing with Southern Texas .
