An Evaluation of the Archaeological Resources at Lake Whitney, Texas
The archaeological resources around the edge of Lake Whitney in Central Texas were inventoried in order to determine the impact that an increase in lake level will have upon the resources. It was determined that testing should accompany site survey in order to insure a realistic evaluation of archaeological sites. Testing determined that several sites have been eroded away by lake edge wave action.
Extensive excavation was conducted at two prehistoric sites. The sites (Bowling Pin site and Indian Springs site) were selected because they appeared to be functionally similar and temporally separated. Analysis of the artifact assemblages provides an insight into excavation procedures and artifact analysis techniques needed to develop a regional perspective.
