From May to June 2002, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), The University of Texas at San Antonio, under contract with Texas Army National Guard (TXARNG), conducted National Register of Historic Places (NRHP)and State Archeological Landmark (SAL) eligibility testing at selected sites within the Camp Maxey training facility in north Lamar County, Texas. The purpose of the current investigations was to assess, through excavation of backhoe trenches, shovel tests, and excavation units, the archaeological significance and NRHP and SAL eligibility of seven prehistoric sites (41LR137, 41LR214, 41LR222, 41LR225, 41LR233, 41LR244, and 41LR254) determined potentially eligible during a previous survey effort. This work was performed under Texas Antiquities Permit Number 2809 issued to Dr. Steve A. Tomka, Principal Investigator for the current testing phase of continuing contractual obligations of archaeological investigations at Camp Maxey through TXARNG. All seven sites are considered ineligible for NRHP listing or SAL designation.
