Summary

Section 110 Survey and Evaluation of 193 Previously Recorded Archaeological Sites at Wallisville Reservoir, Chambers and Liberty Counties, Texas.

Through archival research at TARL, we re-identified 192 archaeological sites within the project area, encompassing an area of 9,966 acres within the Wallisville Reservoir; this included 6,875 acres in Chambers County and 3,091 acres in Liberty County, Texas.

Archaeologists were unable to reach 33 of these sites by pedestrian or boat aided access, and two sites (41CH006 and 41LB093) were not re-located and appear to be outside of Corps of Engineers property. All of the remaining 157 sites were revisited; at each, archaeologists conducted surface and subsurface (shovel testing) investigations, recorded site size, type and extent of disturbance, cultural components, artifact densities, vegetation, and potential threats to archaeological deposits. Sites were evaluated according to these criteria for eligibility for inclusion on the NRHP, according to the criteria set forth by 36 CFR Part 60.
