More about the talk: 

Waldo Troell (TxDOT), David Kelley (Coastal Environments, Inc.), Jon C. Lohse (Coastal Environments, Inc.)

In advance of a planned highway project, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) recently relocated a Caddo site that was first recorded about 80 years earlier and then lost to archeologist. Under contract to TxDOT, Coastal Environments, Inc., conducted archeological data recovery to mitigate the A. S. Mann Site, within the highway right of way between May 2015 and July 2016. The investigations reveal evidence of extensive prehistoric trade networks and potential early contact and conflict with Europeans.
