Abstract

From July 6 to 31, 1977, archaeologists from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), conducted archaeological investigations at Fort McIntosh (41 WB 11), Laredo, Texas. The purpose of this investigation was to make an assessment of areas to be affected by planned tennis courts and parking facilities on the Laredo Junior College campus. The archaeological investigation was done under contract between Laredo Junior College (Dr. Domingo Arechiga, President) and the Center for Archaeological Research, UTSA. The field work was accomplished by Thomas Medlin, crew chief, and Jon McClenny, assistant, with the help of interested college students and amateur archaeologists, under the general supervision of Dr. Thomas R. Hester, Director of the Center, and Mr. Jack D. Eaton, Assistant Director. The following report was prepared from field records, maps and artifacts stored at the Center for Archaeological Research, from information gathered through extended conversations with Medlin and McClenny and from Medlin's (1977b) preliminary report on the investigation.
