Stephens Farm (41NA202) Collection Collection home page


The Stephens Farm site (41NA202) was excavated by Robert L. Turner, Jr. and his father in 1940-1941 (Turner 2008). Turner (2008:9) is of the opinion that the ceramic vessels and vessel sections were from “at least one shallow grave of an individual that had been plowed up and the grave offerings scattered from the yearly cultivation of the area.” In addition to the ceramic vessels, the Turner’s recovered more than 7240 glass trade beads and two silver beads. The six vessels from the Stephens Farm site include both fine wares and plain wares. The engraved fine wares are of the Natchitoches Engraved (n=1) and Patton Engraved types (n=1), both types found in Historic Caddo contexts in the Neches Angelina River basins, especially in contexts dating after ca. A.D. 1720. The plain wares include a plain bowl and three plain bottles, all small in size. Authors: Timothy K. Pertulla, Mark Walters, and Bo Nelson
