Uncovering the Most Significant Archaeological Discoveries in Harris County

The Harris County Flood Control Department had to clear the waterway, but before that happened, an archaeological study had to be carried out. The Harris County Children's School remains an important Texas location for researching the history of the cultures and environments that coexisted and evolved on the High Coast. Site 41HR796, also known as the Dimond Knoll site, is located approximately 22 miles northwest of the city limits of Houston, in northwestern Harris County, Texas. In 1986, research was conducted to prepare a synthesis of the archeology of the Whiteoak Swamp area in western Harris County (Texas), and to carry out subsoil tests at prehistoric sites that might be affected by the U.

S. Army Corps of Engineers' Cypress Creek Flood Control Project. In total, 160 square meters of paleosol were investigated through meticulous excavation at the site (representing approximately 60 to 70 percent of the total). These are some of the most significant archaeological discoveries that were made when a sandy cliff began to collapse in Cypress Creek. The artifacts found at Dimond Knoll provide valuable insight into the lives of ancient people who lived in this area. Among them are stone tools such as projectile points, scrapers, and knives; pottery fragments; and animal bones.

These artifacts indicate that people lived in this area for thousands of years and were involved in hunting, gathering, and fishing activities. The artifacts also provide evidence of trade networks between different cultures. For example, some of the projectile points found at Dimond Knoll are similar to those found in other parts of Texas and even other parts of North America. This suggests that people from different regions were trading goods with each other. The Dimond Knoll site is an important archaeological site for understanding the history of Harris County and its inhabitants. The artifacts found here offer invaluable insight into how people lived in this area thousands of years ago and how they interacted with each other.
