Los Adaes Archaeological Map 1767
In 1767 cartographer Joseph de Urrutia produced this map of Los Adaes and its surroundings for the Spanish colonial government during an inspection of Texas presidios. Archeologists excavating the Los Adaes site near Natchitoches have found it to be an accurate guide to the settlement's layout.
