Center for Archaeological Research




In January 1988, the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, entered into a contract with Waste Management of North America, Inc., to provide archival research and a field survey of an area in southeast San Antonio designated as the vicinity of the 1813 Battle of Rosillo. Archival and published materials indicate that the actual site is approximately one and a half miles from the current marker. Aside from the conclusion that the battle did not take place at the proposed landfill site, the field survey revealed that the land had been severely altered, leaving nothing of archaeological significance.
