Not arrow heads. We spent the last week on a big azz ranch outside of Faywood NM and the landowners let us keep surface finds from a Mimbres camp. This picture picture shows a strong tie to Texas culture.

I found this beat up point while field walking Leon River bottom last week. Ground base, parallel flaking, and looks to have flakes removed. Paleo I'm thinking.

Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.

Those are some cool pieces. One of my brothers found a complete pitcher minus the missing piece at the top back in 96-7.

Show us some more pics of that one. Both sides and a coin for scale? Definately paleo.

I will try to get some good closeups. It looks like parallel oblique flaking. Here is a pic for scale.

That is an interesting and very old point. Flaking may be saint Mary's hall. Base is a little wide for the type though. Could possibly be Clovis but I would lean toward a slightly younger type.

Most of the fragments are older stuff too. The rounded base point in an axtell. Books list them as archaic but I dig them concurrent to Golondrina.

The stemmed point is wells and early to middle archaic. The tools mostly look paleo as does the broken biface by the ruler. Are the tools uniface?

The 2 top left are uniface.

Another question. Do you think the 3 broke bases on the top left could be angostura?

The first one may be a Coryell base. The other two likely angostura. Old camp you are on.

Found this in 1985, while digging a trench on my parents property, in about 3ft of dirt. Located in Bremond, Robertson County, Texas. Fairly close to Waco, but about 50 miles north of Bryan-College Station. For size reference, it is about 1.25" x 3"

Can anyone tell me, opinion on tribe, time period, etc.?

Default Paleo drill

I picked up this drill when we were field walking in the same area as my post a couple of weeks ago, Leon River bottom. The rain made it grow.

This is in a pretty heavily plowed field, so I was shocked by the good condition. Similar basal thinning as the St. Marys type point previously posted, you can tell this thing was hafted on a stick for awhile. The base has a polished feel to it.

Sweet drill. Really a worn down projectile point. Feels great to know you are the first man to hold that in 11000 years . good old site you have.
