Archaeological and historical investigations in Bastrop and Lee counties, Texas
In July 1980, City Public Service (CPS) of San Antonio contracted with the Center for Archaeological Research at The University of Texas at San Antonio to perform a reconnaissance-level archaeological and historical survey of approximately 1900 acres in Bastrop and Lee Counties. CPS designated this area as Study Area A (Fig. 1). CPS owns or controls this area for planned lignite mining. Area A has a buffer zone or zone of interest of approximately 2000 acres which surrounds this area. This buffer zone is scheduled for later survey but is not presently owned by CPS. Ten person days were allocated for the field survey, and 20 person days for research and writing. Roemer prepared the section entitled "Previous Historical Work in the Area"; the remainder was written by Kelly.
