Let me guess... they are building on a nice knoll above a spring fed creek.

Yeah it's dinged up some but its a middle archaic point. 4000 years give or take a thousand.

Most likely Caddo or Cherokee. There is a historic marker somewhere across the hwy. from Tractor Supply in Henderson that has a lot of information on it. The marker used to be across the street from my grandparents' house when I was a kid. I don't recall which tribe but was one of the above. I'll try and locate it and let you know.

Thank you! His wife and kids were excited about finding it. A little history will make it much cooler.

First three are probably tortugas. 2000ish years old. Not sure what I'm looking at on the last item. Maybe some different angles?

Is that a sand dollar pattern on the sinker?

GarGuy 06-10-2022 07:12 PM

Son of a gun! They centered that fossil on the waco sinker! That's an interesting piece

bobc 06-10-2022 07:31 PM

Oh man. That is a cool sinker!

Cool ainít it!

Itís a miracle I noticed it. There was a thousand other stones in the sifter the same size and that groove caught my eye. This is my third sinker but first in hill country terrain.

Iím not sure if the fossil is a fern or a refer plant😬

Found a second broken arrowhead here in Brown county.
Both found near an 1800’s long gone homesite.
Anybody ever find multiple points that might have been
Found before and brought to the old house by the settlers?
Near the Comanche county line.

Thanks

We found these in Tutus county also found lots of pottery in the area too!

We believe the white one in center is a knife as with bottom second from left which is a very thin one at that and looks to have a groove for the handle with a forward stop. Info would be great! Was told Archaic but someone else called it something else so....

GarGuy 06-13-2022 08:05 PM

Better pics needed of the white one with groove and tge broke up red one beside it. Good focused pics of both sides would help.

I think you are right. Learn something new every day.

It might of been used as a sinker.

Makes it super cool...

It certainly is an echinoid(sp) that gas been altered into an artifact. Now it's the coolest waco sinker ever.

Man 06-14-2022 10:03 AM

Museum quality waco sinker right there.

Thanks. Didn't know you was over there.

chopsknives 06-16-2022 12:02 PM

Hey Thanx GarGuy for the ID was really surprised the two you wanted to see I thought others were more interesting but I'm def no pro at darts! After hearing that red one might have been in a fire we immediately did a smudging in the entire house and all of our artifacts!! We've got the Stone Artifacts of Texas Indians book and it's helping a lot but def a lot to be learned!! Erica joined the Artifacts.com yesterday too!!

So if it was in a fire does this mean it was a burial item? If yes then I assume I should put it back is there anything I need to do beside place it back where we found it?

The two I ask for better pics of both had potential to be paleo. They did not turn out yo be after better pics. The grouping is all middle to late archaic .

Nothing burial there. Artifacts got fire damage many ways ranging from being discarded into a fire to forest fires, cooked in meat, etc. You have a nice archaic site. Go find some more!
