Prewitt and Associates, Inc., completed an evaluation of the western portion of Subarea C at 41CV1310 on the Fort Hood Military Reservation in June and July 2007. The work was conducted for the Texas Department of Transportation in conjunction with the proposed Northeast Copperas Cove Bypass in southern Coryell County. Fieldwork included a resurvey of the area and hand excavation of shovel tests and test units. Maximum dimensions of the tested landform, a small segment of Holocene terrace (T) adjacent to 1 House Creek, are 65x40 m, or 2,600 m2. Excavations yielded only sparse prehistoric cultural remains in questionable depositional context, and the area has no potential to contain an intact and interpretable prehistoric component. It is recommended that this portion of 41CV1310 is not eligible for listing in the National Register and warrants no further work.
