A Pilot Study of Wichita Indian Archaeology and Ethnohistory

Final Report for Grant GS-964, National Science Foundation

Robert E. Bell, Edward B. Jelks, W. W. Newcomb - 1967

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

A very rare publication on the Wichita Indian tribes utilizing both archival research and and excavations of sites in Texas and Oklahoma.

The pilot study was designed to:
      a) obtain a body of field data from the components of the Spanish Fort sites, the largest and best-documented of the historic Wichita sites in the Red River area;
     b) make test excavations at several other sites in order that a problem-oriented program of future research can be accurately planned;
     c) attempt to locate, by field reconnaissance, sites that relate to the Wichita occupation of the southern plains on both the historic and prehistoric time levels;
     d) make a survey of available ethnohistorical data in order (1) to compile a bibliography of documentary materials relevant to Wichita ethnohistory, (2) to make a detailed study of documents that relate specifically to the excavations being carried out at Spanish Fort and at the sites being tested, (3) to seek information that might lead to the field locations of other Wichita sites, and (4) to appraise those sources best suited for more extended examination.

Contributors include: Tyler Bastian, Robert E. Bell, Jay C. Blaine, W. T. Field, Kathleen Gilmore, Inus M. Harris, R. K. Harris, Edward B. Jelks, Harald P. Jensen, Jr. , Dessamae Lorrain, David Lubell, W. W. Newcomb, C. A. Smith, Jr. and  J. Ned Woodall.
