An Archaeological Survey of Texas

Medallion Papers - Volume 27

E. B. Sayles - 1935

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

 

In this volume of the Medallion Papers, E.B. Sayles surveys Texas archaeology from a cultural perspective. 

"The purpose of this survey is to define the cultures of Texas and their boundaries; to determine the relations which may once have existed between the tribes of Texas and those of adjoining sections; and to seek traces of the origin, or of the passage, of the Hohokam, the agricultural colonists of southern Arizona, whose provenance has not yet been discovered.
No attempt has been made to record all of the archaeological sites in Texas, but merely to note a sufficient number of them to indicate culture. The methods followed are those used by Gila Pueblo in all archaeological surveys.
Wherever the evidence has warranted, ethnological designations have been used to name archaeological cultures. Intensive archaeological investigation in the area surveyed as well as further study of the mass of early French and Spanish records will determine whether these designations are correct and possibly throw light on other aspects of the archaeology of Texas."

Due to the number of large foldout maps, charts and tables, we have bound this book to lie flat when opened.
