Archaeological Resources of the Cooper Reservoir, Texas

Part of the Cooper Lake 1970 project

Author(s): S. Alan Skinner; Robert D. Hyatt

Year: 1971


One hundred and five archaeological sites were located and recorded within the area of the proposed Cooper Reservoir, Texas. Sites occur in six topographic situations and are further divided into two time periods, the Archaic and Caddo. Analysis of lithic samples from each site is correlated with site distribution in an attempt to determine the location of specific maintenance activities.

A research design is proposed for the salvaging of the archaeological resources of the reservoir area prior to dam construction and inundation.
