Current Research: Selected Historic Caddo Allen Phase Vessels from the Deshazo Site (41NA13/27) on Bayou Loco, Nacogdoches County, Texas
Caddo Archeology Journal
Continuing with the on-going study of ancestral Caddo ceramic vessels from East Texas Caddo sites, I document three ceramic vessels and a fourth ceramic vessel section from excavations at the Deshazo site (41NA13/27) by The University of Texas at Austin (UT) in 1975-1976. The Deshazo site is the best studied Allen phase settlement in East Texas, and the archaeological investigations there indicates it was a small centralized hamlet of an affiliated group with a series of circular structures and an associated household or family cemetery. Most sites of the Allen phase were apparently occupied for only short periods of time, perhaps an average of 20 to 40 years, based on an analysis of structure rebuilding episodes at the Deshazo site.
