This report documents the results of an intensive archeological survey carried out in advance of construction of a proposed U.S. Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinic on 14 acres owned by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas. The survey was conducted in compliance with the Antiquities Code of Texas under Permit No. 8415. Archeologists from AmaTerra Environmental, Inc. (AmaTerra) visually inspected the entire Area of Potential Effects (APE) and excavated 7 shovel tests in support of the survey. No new archeological sites were discovered as a result of the survey and no artifacts were observed within the APE. No artifacts were collected during this survey, but a field records and photographs were made during investigations. These records and photographs are to be permanently housed at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL) in Austin. AmaTerra recommends that no further archeological work is warranted prior to construction.
