The first one on the left is a drill (broken). No telling about the age. What county were these found in? I'm seeing a couple that could be Pedernales or Uvalde (?).

I say yes. Beautiful point, can't believe that tip is still all there.

Probably a coryell. Early archaic. It does bear some of resemblance to a grouping of points I once dug that arent officially named. I would go with coryell on yours judging from those pics.

Here are 4 that I found in roughly the same spot along a dry drainage in dimmit county. The two on the left are both really thick, especially the top one. The one on the bottom left is smooth on the other side and the tip slightly slopes up. The two on the right are both pretty thin. Any idea what they are called and a general age?

Here are some more points I have found recently in the same area as the points in the last post. The "tear drop" shape points, we find alot of those, we joke and call them indian guitar picks.

The perdiz and the triangle are my favorite finds so far. When I found the perdiz I just stared at it for a minute because I was kinda stunned. At first I thought it was a leave, it was just sitting so perfect on a pedestal of dirt at the base of a cactus. The triangle was a pure accident, I was walking back to my truck on a main ranch road and kicked what I thought was a broken piece of flint. When the piece flipped over like a ninja star, I got really excited and realized what I found. This is the first triangle we have found, but those tear drop points where found within 40 yards on the same ranch road.

The last 2 pictures are close ups of the triangle and the perdiz. They are both really thin and the perdiz is no thicker than a dollar bill.

Any idea what these points are each called, approximate age, and what tribe normally made them?

SabineHunter 06-06-2021 08:39 PM

Wow, beautiful points.

There are good a bunch of late archaic triangles out there like Matamois and Tortugas but I dont think your last one falls in with them. I think it is an Early Triangle. Actual name and a very nice one. Great beveling. Also the stubby little guy may be a paleo point. Woukd have to gave them in hand to say for sure. Maybe Reelthreat will chip in. He knows those points out there.

I have numerous scraping tools, arrow heads, pottery shards. Extended family owns land where a large Indian camp use to exist 400 to 800 yrs ago.
No till farming keeps things covered up.. doesnt bring them to the top like a plow.
This display belongs to my dad.
There is still a large depression on a high hill.. where they used to have fires.. still a few silted in caves along an abandoned river bed.. there also used to be visible hieroglyphics along a sandstone cliff.. we got to see them when i was in boyscouts,.. 44 odd yrs ago.
Where i live, we have Pawnee Gap, it is a magical almost mystical path, used by Indians for centuries..
Zebulon Pike camped there in 1806. My grandmother lived in the gap with her 3 sisters.

Neat display and fun to look at but unfortunately most of that is modern fantasy. I would love to see just the items found.

I was wondering how you might approach that.

I will get some pics of my personal finds

No it hasn't. Modern lithic art is cool. I own quite a bit of it. It just shouldnt be confused with ancient artifacts.

Found this a few weekend back. A small broke point next to it for size reference. I'm assuming this is a hand axe, approx 8-9inches in length.

Found in Uvalde county

Found this one in Mason County (southern part). No clue on the kind but it's the first one I've found on my lease. Any input would be appreciated.
