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. [emoji3]

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.

GarGuy 01-11-2020 12:18 PM

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?

Attachment 987507

GarGuy 01-11-2020 08:36 PM

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.?

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.

i posted a pic of this head with a broken tip in 2016, since then i have walked this spot over a billion times, every time i go to the lease and every day i've been there, i look for the tip to this head. i have even dug around a little, i have never found another head or the tip. Two weeks ago i was at the lease and walked over to the area and there it was, just laying there! i knew what it was as soon as i seen it! that's just the craziest thing !!!

That is insanely cool! Congrats on putting together a beautiful point.

SaltwaterSlick 07-13-2020 10:29 AM

:eek: that is Amazing!! How cool is that!! I found a broken head similarly a long time ago, but I found the whole thing at the same time... was in 3 pieces and I got all three pieces. Nothing like what you did tho... That is cool!! Congratulations on a great find!

GarGuy 07-13-2020 10:31 AM

Well how about that! Looks like a Sansaba basetang knife. I have done that several times. Great feeling.

That is an awesome story. And helluva knife too..

DOUBLE-Z 07-23-2020 10:32 PM

I found this today as I was walking through the property. It caught my eye just lying there. Any info or opinions on what it could be would be great!!

Looks like some of that black chert from down around Georgetown. No clue on the name of the shape or who made it.

Here's a few I found over the years. About 90% of them are surface finds from weekend at a ranch near Concan.
There was a large flat rocky ledge high up on one of the "mountains" that was covered in chips and pieces. Pretty cool to realize that they had been sitting there exposed to the elements for hundreds if not thousands of years.

My favorite is the 6th from the left on the top row because of where I found it. There was a long high ridge that overlooked a valley, and on the last 200 yards of it was a stone wall made of HUGE boulders about 6-8' in diameter. They had been placed in a zig-zag pattern, likely a defensive position built by the Spanish. I can only imagine how they were able to move those massive stones. That point was laying beside one of the boulders.

The 4th and fifth from the left on the top were dug on my Grandmother's place near Lexington. My Uncles dug a LOT of artifacts from the place back in the 60's with just shovels.

Another surface find. It was laying in a cattle trail on a place near Gatesville.

Spent 6 hours digging today. Nothing stellar but we found a few. Quite a bit of bone and shell so hopefully we are getting close.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...5e6bd8979c.jpg
