Scope and Content

Collection consists of archaeological and paleontological reports of sites on or near City of Dallas properties.  The reports were written by Timothy Dalbey, independent scientific researcher, archaeologist, geoarchaeologist, and paleontologist.

Archaeological reports include investigations of indigenous settlements in what is now Dallas County, Texas.  A number of environmental reports concern Big Spring, which sits in Southeast Dallas County Texas in the neighborhood of Pleasant Grove and the subsection of an area called Pemberton Hill, south of US 175 and west of Pemberton Hill Road Dallas, Texas.  One of the only natural spring sites left in Dallas, Big Spring contributes 11.5-14 million gallons of water into the watersheds of White Rock Creek and the Trinity River Basin annually.
