Abstract

On June 9, 1980, archaeologists from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, investigated a reported discovery of human bones where construction is underway at the Victoria Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, Victoria, Texas. The Center was informed of the discovery by David Welsch of the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority, who requested that an investigation be made by qualified persons to assess the bone material and immediate surroundings for the purpose of determining the potential importance of the cultural resource. The field investigations were carried out by Daniel Potter, Lee Spencer, and Robert Scott, all of whom have considerable experience with excavation and evaluation of prehistoric human remains. The fieldwork was done under the general supervision of Dr. Thomas R. Hester and Jack D. Eaton.
