A Review of Archaeological Investigations in Bosque, Erath, Hood, Johnson, and Somervell Counties, Texas
A review of existing literature revealed Somervell County and its immediate neighbors, Bosque, Erath, Hood, and Johnson, counties, are in a region of Texas containing significant prehistoric and historic sites. In fact, each of these counties has sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was determined that prehistoric and historic sites in the five counties have been recorded primarily by two means: reservoir surveys conducted by professional archaeologists and the efforts of individuals, sometimes avocational archaeologists. As of March 2, 1995, the five counties had the following number of recorded sites at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL) in Austin, Texas: Bosque (252), Erath (33), Hood (70), Johnson (12), and Somervell (105). Archaeological sites in the five counties date from Paleoindian times, about 10,000 years ago, through the present.
