Abstract : The excavations at site 34-Cm-232 during the summer of 1977 constituted assessment and mitigation of impacts to be made by plans to construct barracks for soldiers receiving their Basic Combat Training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. It constitutes an addendum to a project of archaeological reconnaissance of that same Military Reservation. Although a blacktopped equipment parking lot had existed over the site since the Second World War, information from local oral traditions, written documents relating to the period, and a commemorative marker erected on the site probably in the 1930's indicated that this was the likely location of structures associated with the original Kiowa, Comanche, and Kiowa Apache Indian Agency. As will be shown, significant remains confirming this location did exist.
