Abstract

The Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) conducted limited testing associated with the planned installation of fiber optic cables from the Gallagher parking lot to the Alamo Complex. The parking lot is located to the northeast and directly across the street from the Alamo Complex. The fieldwork was completed in September 2015, pursuant to Texas Antiquities Permit No. 7428. Testing involved the excavation of a 3-x-3 foot (ft.; 0.91-x-0.91 meter [m]) unit to a depth of 36 inches (in.; 91.4 centimeters [cm]). With the exception of faunal remains, only temporally diagnostic artifacts were collected and curated.
