On March 9 and 10, 2020, archeologist Aaron Norment from AmaTerra Environmental, Inc. (AmaTerra) conducted an intensive archeological survey with shovel testing on three parcels of land for part of the FM 2218 roadway project in Fort Bend County, Texas. This survey is for detention ponds and a segment of outfall line where right of entry was not granted during a prior survey along FM 2218. Total acreage surveyed for the three parcels measures approximately 37 acres. A total of 28 shovel tests were excavated across all three parcels resulting in recording one mid-twentieth century historic house site, 41FB363. Based on the age of the structure, poor integrity, and lack of attendant artifact assemblage, the site is recommended as not eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) or designation as a State Antiquities Landmark (SAL). No further archeological work is necessary. This survey was a no collection survey. As such, no artifacts were collected, and all records and photographs generated during this project will be housed at AmaTerra’s offices.
