Center for Archaeological Research
The Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio undertook archaeological investigations of the gristmill and adjacent areas at Mission San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo in San Antonio, Texas, in mid-December 1996. The work was completed in advance of work proposed for making the mill operational. The restoration required that six areas be examined: a set of limestone staircases crossing the acequia near the mill, the interior of the mill's sluice, the forebay, the floor of the mill vault, a small portion of the mill race, and a stone-lined pit that is presumed to be either a tanning or sugar processing vat east of the mill.
