Abstract : The periphery of Lewisville Lake, Denton County, Texas, was surveyed in 1986-1987, the results of which were reported in Lebo and Brown. Twenty-three prehistoric and 16 historic sites, including one multicomponent site were approved for testing. This work has been conducted by the Institute of Applied Sciences, University of North Texas, as part of contract No. DACW63-86-C-0098 with the Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The purpose of this report is to summarize the character and significance of the archaeological sites tested during 1988, and to provide recommendations concerning necessary additional work to mitigate the adverse effects of the proposed pool raise on these sites and to further substantiate the eligibility of specific sites for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. To accomplish this goal, each site is described, including its context and content, and summary statements concerning our assessment of each site's potential archaeological significance and National Register eligibility.)
