Abstract : This report presents the results and conclusions of archeological investigations on 571 prehistoric sites at Fort Hood in Bell and Coryell counties, Texas. The primary goal of the work was to evaluate each site with respect to its eligibility for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). A secondary goal was to assess site boundaries. Between August 1991 and June 1993 Mariah Associates, Inc. (Mariah) evaluated 571 prehistoric sites located in maneuver areas. All 571 sites were evaluated by a specialized reconnaissance team which recorded explicit observations of archeological content and natural context. If warranted, sites were subdivided into management areas on the basis of geomorphology and differing potential for intact buried deposits. In all, the 571 sites were subdivided into 897 different management areas. Many small sites consisted of a single management area, while some large sites contained up to eight discrete management areas. (MM)
