The cultural historical place of Buried City in the Southern Plains: Architecture based on 41OC28 and 41OC29 in Ochiltree County, Texas
The Buried City complex and 41OC28 and 41OC29 are archaeological sites in Ochiltree County, Texas known since the early 1900s. The architecture to this area is unique in that it incorporates large caliche boulders as part of its foundation unlike those structures found at Antelope Creek proper that use vertical limestone slabs. The examination of current taxonomy will leave the Buried City on its own as a complex or place it with the Antelope Creek phase. Conducting a regional comparison of architecture in areas such as the Oklahoma Panhandle, western Oklahoma, and southeastern Texas Panhandle will provide this information. The purpose of this project is to examine the taxonomy, the regional architecture and the architectural layout of 41OC28 and 41OC29, including interpretation of features, and depth of test units. By utilizing ArcGIS, it is plausible to place Buried City in its appropriate taxonomic classification.
