It is the site of several early Texans.

The work was the subject of the December 17 GeoSpace blog of the American Geophysical Union. Aziz and her team used ground-penetrating radar to help locate the unmarked graves. She presented the project this week at a poster session during the American Geophysical Union's (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

GeoSpace is a blog on Earth and space science, managed by AGU's Public Information staff. The blog features posts on relevant science topics, with a focus on new research and geo and space sciences-related stories that are currently in the news.
