Cooper Lake 1970

Summary

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 the 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.

    DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Tyler Sutton

    Field specimen catalog sheets for the Cooper Lake 1970 investigations conducted in Delta County. The Cooper Lake investigations consisted of a two month archaeological site survey of the area to be included within the proposed limits of the Cooper Reservoir, Delta and Hopkins counties, northeast Texas. One hundred and five prehistoric sites were recorded during the survey, 85 of which will be directly affected by construction of the dam and reservoir. Upon completion of the survey limited...

    The linear extent of this collection is 15 inches of paper, 9 inches of photographic materials and less than 1 inch of oversize materials. The MCX-CMAC utilizes the standard archival practice of unique naming of collections. The purpose of this is to avoid redundant and confusing collection names commonly found with archaeological investigations. Therefore, this collection is referred to as "Cooper Lake, 1970.” This naming practice is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folder...
