The Rowland Clark site is located in Red River County, Texas, on a prehistoric river channel of the Red River that has been intersected by a more recent channel of the river. It is approximately 16 km south of the Arnold Roitsch or Sam Kaufman (41RR16) site. The site had small Coles Creek and Early Caddoan period occupations, but the major occupation was of a McCurtain phase group of the Late Caddoan period. I
The site has been in the Clark family for more than a century. The land the site is on is the property of Mr. Rowland Clark.
The site lies on a narrow alluvial terrace at the edge of the floodplain, and it is bounded on the north by a comparatively recent river bank with springs at the base (Figure 1 ). An older river bank is to the east, and to the west is a small range of sandy pimple mounds, some 5-6 feet tall. These pimple mounds may be ancient sand dunes. A shallow swampy depression, part of an older watercourse, lies between the sandy mounds and the site.
