Abstract : National Register testing was conducted at 42 sites on Fort Hood, Texas, in 1996 by Prewitt and Associates, Inc. All are open campsites and are grouped by geomorphic setting or geographic location as follows: Paluxy sites (n = 14), House-Ripstein Creek sites (n = 15), Cowhouse-Table Rock-Cottonwood Creek sites (n = 8), and other sites (n = 5). Intact buried cultural components that are recommended as eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places were identified at 20 of these sites. Chronology of the identified occupation zones is established based on 62 radiocarbon dates; 45 of these were on cultural features.
