The Bowles Creek site is a substantial Historic Caddo period Allen phase settlement on a natural rise in the Bowles Creek floodplain in the Neches River basin in East Texas. There have been several rounds of work completed at the site, and other ancestral Caddo sites in the Bowles Creek valley since the Bowles Creek site was first recorded by Stingley, including intensive shovel testing, the excavation of a number of 1 x 1 m units in various parts of the site, and the remote sensing of a 2400 square meter area in the southern part of the site. In this article, we discuss the archaeological findings from work done at the site in May 2018 by the East Texas Archeological Society.
