Abstract : A pedestrian survey of 14,000 acres encompassing the periphery of Lewisville Lake, a multipurpose reservoir in North central Texas, resulted in the documentation of 151 historic and prehistoric components of which 39 have been recommended for further testing to determine eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places. The prehistoric sites include Archaic and Late Prehistoric camps of short- and long-term occupations, exhibiting strong potential for contributing to regional research issues such as the relationships between critical resources and settlement locations, past environments, and adaptive strategies. Sites occupied during the historical period date from circa 1870 to 1950, offering data necessary to the investigation of changing patterns of adaptation by settlers over a century of rapid technological development.
