Abstract : This report is a three month study of systematic and intensive field investigations of the Aquilla Creek Watershed. The purpose was to evaluate the cultural resources that includes an archaeological and historical inventory of the area along Aquilla and Hackberry Creeks between State Highway 22 and Aquilla, Texas with regard to the impact of the construction of the proposed lake would have on them. There were one hundred twenty-five prehistoric sites recorded in the area. The rolling hilly terrain makes for environmental variation within a short distance. The report recommends salvage excavations to recover cultural information about prehistoric occupation of the site before construction of the lake. (Author)
