report description
Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) performed an archaeological survey along a one-mile segment of the Greenhouse Road lane addition in western Harris County, Texas for Harris County on October 3, 2007. William E. Moore was the Principal Investigator, and Phil Bishop was the Project Archaeologist. This study was carried out under Texas Antiquities Committee Permit Number 4685 issued by the Texas Historical Commission (THC), Archeology Division. The project area was investigated using the pedestrian survey method supported by shovel testing. In all, the project area consisted of three acres. No archaeological sites were found, and no artifacts were collected. The area was found to be very disturbed prior to the visit by BVRA. Copies of the final report are housed at the THC, the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), and BVRA
