Archaeological Survey of Lackland Air Force Base, Bexar County, Texas
The Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted a pedestrian cultural resources survey on 3,860 acres of land at Lackland Air Force Base and Medina Base Annex in Bexar County, Texas. Limited surveys and shovel testing began in the spring of 1994 in areas slated for development. These were followed by a 100-percent-pedestrian survey with limited shovel testing of the remaining undisturbed and undeveloped areas during the fall of 1994 and spring of 1995. Selective paleontological and geomorphological evaluations also were made.
The project recorded 71 archaeological sites. Sixty-four sites had only prehistoric components, four had both historic and prehistoric components, and three had only a historic component. Additionally, two previously recorded prehistoric sites were revisited. Prehistoric site types are open campsites and/or lithic quarries. Diagnostic projectile points and tools indicate this area was used from the Early Archaic through the Late Prehistoric periods. The historic sites were classified as farmsteads dating to the late-nineteenth and early- to mid-twentieth centuries.
Seventy-one of the 73 sites are deemed eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
