The El Sauz project: Archaeological testing of selected sites in the Arroyo Los Olmos watershed, Starr County, Texas
In August 1979, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), conducted an archaeological survey of selected sites in the Los Olmos Creek watershed in Starr County, Texas. The field work was carried out under Purchase Order No. 53-7442-9-713 between the Soil Conservation Service, United States Department of Agriculture, Temple, Texas, and UTSA. The purpose of the survey was to determine the eligibility of these sites for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Subsurface testing, controlled surface collections and laboratory analysis of cultural data were to be utilized to determine if the selected sites met the criteria for nomination.
