Don't overlook the big stuff. Sometimes you can find larger tools that may indicate a camp nearby. I found the mano on our new lease in San Saba county last summer. This past week I found a broken metate on another part of the ranch. It's very hard to find unbroken metates.

definitely on my list to find! i used to see them at shops all the time in El Paso, but I sure would like to find a really nice one intact.

Sure wish this one was not broke. It would've been almost identical to the other one pictured above.

Found this piece this morning in Young County. Looks like part of a metate. Anybody able to confirm this?

GarGuy 11-15-2014 09:00 PM

Heck yeah. Complete and really well dished.

GarGuy, shouldn't it be dished or bowl like on both ends? I think it's broke in about half but you may know better. Either way, to me it is a huge find. I consider this a better trophy than the 10 point I let walk earlier on.

I have the same problem hank!

salth2o 11-19-2014 06:32 PM

Here Are a few others I found recently. ..and one sharks tooth that is pretty big. I wish I had the entire arrowhead of the one in the middle. What kind is it? Thoughts on the other two?

Cisco Jack 11-19-2014 08:00 PM

I'm thinking that the long shanked broken one is a Wells.
GarDude or Johnny will likely know for sure.
Like that other one. What is it?

I believe it (the complete arrowhead) is a clovis.

No, Its not a Clovis but it is paleo. Its a Hells Gap. About 11,000 years old. Darn nice point. The skinny stem is Wells.

redfish76 11-21-2014 02:35 PM

My F-I-L is always looking for arrowheads when I take him out to my places. He has a huge collection, mainly from when he was a boy growing up south of San Antonio.

He has gotten my boys into it as well. In fact, the other day I was at the lease and needed to open a plastic package to add a part to one of my feeders. I didn't have a knife handy so I searched my truck to no avail. All I could find was a flint arrowhead/cutting tool in my center console so I used that to open the package. Hundreds of years later, it worked like a charm! ;)b

Stopped on way back from Rockport today to dig at a place in central Texas near Moody. It was a muddy mess but we found a couple.

Aboud 03-11-2015 08:49 PM

Awesome to see the kiddos involved. Was this at chrisners?

How rare is one of these things? I found a really large stone (too big to lift) with a well-ground bowl and the grinding stone sitting in the bowl. I don't have any pics with me.

They are not terribly rare but they ARE terribly interesting. Really large ones are pretty sought after though. Two ft and larger may be worth 500 plus dollars.

Wow! Have no interest in selling it, but still interesting. The stone is probably three feet long. The grinding stone is about 1.5 x the size of a softball.

Please at least take some pictures and post them up. If you found the bowl with the mano still in it that would be pretty rare. I understand that the indians used to bury their metates and manos when they broke camp. I guess they were heavy to transport and they would be there when they returned to that camp later on.

Going there this weekend. I'll get pictures.

I found this tonight. I'm still green at identifying them so I try to look them up. Is this a Marcos point from the Late to Transitional Archaic?

Do these look like anything guys? Found in Cleburne

quarterback 03-31-2015 02:59 PM

AZ&F that mano and metate is too cool! Somebody sat right there at that spot, perhaps thousands of years ago and ground stuff up for their food. That is awesome. Is it near the edge of a hill or a spring or anything? Have you located any camps near that stone?
