Here we go. Found a bunch of nice brokes. Did find some nice stuff too tho. Found another broke Scottsbluff. Found a nice Marshall, and a killer transparent agate point with the tip broke. A couple of nice Wells too. I think Im digging the garbage dump! Cant wait to work into the main site. That may be several months at the rate im going though.

That red point in the third pic is NOT broken. The workmanship is incredible. Its an odd shape but thats exactly the way he wanted it.

Go BIG! I like your style!

I've never found one single arrow head of any kind; I can't imagine a property with that much stuff concentrated.

Your knowledge of these points is amazing in itself.

I'll definately be following this thread! Thanks for sharing your testimony AND the results from this dig.

Johnny, I was talking about the third point from the left in my hand on the top row. Heavily ground base percussion flaking to a median ridge. Expanded base with thinning from the base. It isnt classic Scotty but I think it is Scottsbluff II.

May not be though.

Johnny, what do you make of this point? Heavily ground base including the surface but is made in a way that looks like it hafted at an angle. It is perfect workmanship. No damage.

Agreed. It is a blade of some sort. About 3 inches long. The odd deal is that it seem to have been hafted at an angle the base is ground and formed at about a 20 degree angle to the blade. Chipping style indicates late archaic but base is heavily ground.

Yes, I don't think I would call that 1 point a Scottsbluff simply because of the flaking along the surface. About 99% of the Scotty's I have seen have parallel flaking along the surface. Here is a real nice one TBH member Clayton found awhile back. Maybe he will chime in here in a bit. He is very good on his early archaic/paleo knowledge.

http://www.texasarrowheads.com/featu...-scottsbluffs/


Now that knife looks to be made out of Ogallala chert which was fairly common during woodland times so I don't think that piece is old either as you mentioned. The grounding along the base could possibly be just thinning strikes along the base perhaps. I would go with a woodland type knife. They made them in different shapes n sizes along the way.


I'm jealous!

Thats a beauty of a classic ScottsBluff I. I have a few I need to photograph.... I also agree on the blade not being old. It is weird how it is surface ground though. Its a pretty point anyway.

I sure would love to come help and watch what you are doing, where you are doing it and how you are doing it to learn? Our place in south texas has the Nueces River running through it and there has to be sites there? I just have no idea where to begin? Please keep posting more on this! Good Luck!

Yep there are good sites all along the nueces.

Im about finished with the gator hunt. We have been after a giant but he hasnt taken a bait so far. We pulled the lines today and went to another spot with a couple of nice lizzards. The lady killed a decent 9fter. We put out hooks for tonight. If we dont nhave one in the morning, I am gonna let the fellow shoot one so we can wrap this up and let me get back to DIGGING! Im having withdrawals!

I've only found one arrowhead. I was hunting down by Turkey,Tx and just happened to look down and see it laying alond a dry creek bed. It was perfect. Somehow I lost it while moving. Maybe I'll find another one someday.

WHOOO HOOOOOOO! Finally got out there and started digging about 630pm. Was still digging way down off the main site tto complete my drainage. The first couple of buckets didnt show much and I was really wanting to dig somewhere else but i knew i needed to clean this spot up so it would drain. Next buck got me about 4ft deep and i saw an obvious pile of ancient charcoal. I put that bucket in the sifter and went back and got another bucket of the same material. I killed the loader and walked to the sifter to see what was showing. as i walked up, Dad grabbed a long sleek Plainview from the screen and handed it to me still coated in dirt! I quickly washed it and he asked if it was damaged. NO IT WASNT!!!! It was flawless except the base wasnt perfectly symetrical! It is so thin that you can see through it and some of the best ancient workmanship i have ever seen.
After a little celebration, we started digging again and found several more really nice whole points although most were shallower than the Plainview. These came from dirt I didnt even want to sift!
