Site 41BZ87 is a prehistoric site situated on a low knoll above Thompson Creek in western Brazos County. It is within the approximately 6 ft. wide right-of-way of the future alignment of S.H. 47. Phase II arch~ logical testing was begun by the author in August, 1992, to determine the site's eligibility for inclusion in the National Register of Hist4 · c Places (in accordance with 36 CFR, Part 800) and assess its potential for State Landmark status. The site contains an unknown prehistoric cultural zone of undetermined age or affiliation. The occupation is exposed on the surface and extends to some 40 cm deep in the sandy soil and gravel. No diagnostic material were recovered, no featu1 es were noted, and only 2 flakes and 6 chips was found during testing . Further testing will not add to the overall regional database for prehistoric sites. Site 41BZ87 is extremely minimal as a site and it does not meet the criteria for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places nor should it be designated as a State Archaeological Landmark.
