An archaeological survey of the Bryan East Side (Sam Rayburn) Park Area in the city of Bryan, Brazos County Texas
An archaeological survey was conducted at a 23.074 acre tract in the city limits of Bryan, Texas at the site of the Bryan East Side (Sam Rayburn) Park by Brazos Valley Research Associates. Fieldwork was carried out during the period of September 11-14, 1989. A pedestrian survey produced one chert flake and one uniface in a disturbed context. Shovel testing failed to recover any cultural materials and no prehistoric site was recorded. A review of historic maps for the county did not disclose the presence of structures present in the project area and no evidence of a historic site was observed in the field. Local informants stated that the area was used for pasture for many years and it is likely that no homestead was ever located there. Virtually the entire project area has been disturbed due to landscaping activities. It is highly unlikely that undisturbed cultural materials are present beneath the surface anywhere in the project area.
