Journal of Northeast Texas Archaeology




One of the goals of recent archaeological research investigations in the upper Neches River valley in East Texas is to better understand the temporal and stylistic character of the post-A.D. 1400/1450 Frankston and Allen phase Caddo ceramic assemblages found in this area. From this will hopefully arise a better understanding of the settlement history of Caddo peoples living here.

This research has involved a detailed examination of 278 vessels from burials on seven sites in the collections at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), 31 vessels from burials at 41AN38, and a review of other vessel data (n=321 vessels) from several other sites and diverse collections, both at TARL, in private collections, and in archaeological excavations. In total, I have compiled a data base of 630 vessels from 35 different sites in Anderson, Cherokee, Henderson, and Smith counties, Texas.
