Researchers have found that Spring Lake may be much older than previously thought and that human habitation of the area may extend further back in history, according to findings of an underwater geoarchaeology survey released by the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University. The team that discovered evidence of an early dam and of soil samples dating to the Paleolithic era was led by the center's Fritz Hanselmann, with support from the National Geographic Society, the Waitt Institute and the Center for Archaeological Studies. The survey report can be found here. (Texas State University)
