Journal of Northeast Texas Archeology
During the 1993 field season at the Tyson site (41SY92), conducted by the East Texas and Northeast Texas Archaeological societies, two burial features were uncovered (Features 14 and 15). These features contained the skeletal remains of three Caddo subadults, ranging in age from birth to one to two years. Burial 1 (Feature 14) yielded the partial skeleton of a child less than two years old, as well as elements of a second, slightly younger, child. Burial 2 (Feature 15) produced the remains of a well-preserved infant. This article describes the excavation and osteology protocols, a description of taphonomic conditions, inventory of these burials, demography, size of the subadults, their state of health, and cranial modification.
