Abstract

On May 5, 2022, the University of Texas at San Antonio Center for Archaeological Research conducted auger testing along 400 m (1,300 ft. or approximately 0.10 acres) of the southern right-of-way of Bruce Road, west from its intersection with Old Pleasanton Road. These tests were an effort to assess the potential for buried artifacts associated with the 1813 Battle of Medina which occurred in the near vicinity. A total of 16 tests were made and no artifacts associated with the Battle of Medina were encountered. All materials recovered were photo documented prior to discard and the photographs are part of the permanent curation package. No further work is recommended.
