My wife daughter and I were walking the creek one day after some flooding and found this one, in the creek bottom.

Any guesses on what these are? Found in Jasper county near Angelina river. The blunt one appears to be intentionally rounded, doesn't look broken. I was at the Heritage Village in Woodville yesterday, there were a couple in display cases that looked just like it.

The rounded one is a much resharpened Gary. Yes (like most) it was a knife form. the other is likely a Yarborough although if it is stem ground it could be a Early stemmed/Wilson. 3,000ish years old on both unless that one is ground.

Thanks! Check out post 842, what do you think about that one? That one and these other two were found about 30yds apart.

Quarterback pretty much answered it. Could be epps as could the second one above. At any rate it is likely middle Archaic like the two above.

Default ID?

Can someone please help me with an ID on this one. Found along the Llano River in Mason County. Matches perfectly to a Clovis on size according to my Overstreet guide book. Also looks like a Arkabutla, but doesnít match as well. Any help is appreciated.

Hmmm.....let me get my little book out and see what it says. That is a very definitive tool and it looks old from the base. Very cool find. That country around Llano has loads of arrowheads.

On edit: At first glance it could be one of the following:
- Barber (possibly re-sharpened)
- Golondrina
- Kinney
- Plainview

I'll give it another look and try to narrow it down a little more.

Some of those do look really close. The only reason I said Clovis is because it matched one of the pictures perfectly. It does look real close to a Barber and Golondrina as well though

The resharpening looks non clovis but lets see the other side. Show the basal flaking if possible. it does look Paleo.

Don't see that one listed in my book GarGuy. Do you have another source that identifies Texas artifacts? I'd love to have more resources to ID some of the points I find.

I’ve got a good one to share. I inherited the below embedded arrowhead. My grandparents were somewhat well off and had a habit of buying items that were sold to them as “museum quality pieces.” Either way this is a cool item but I am skeptical. Anyone have any ideas?

For reference, the vertebra next to the one in question is from a 9 point buck that dressed at 125 lbs. so this is from maybe an elk-sized animal? I’m not really sure.

Good to know. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Sure enough there is one labeled as a deer vertebrae for a whopping $10.

This FILís collection he recently gave me, a few complete points but most are brokes, some pieces of pottery with markings, some type of rock tool that had a small concave spot ground into it and one cool broke pottery pipe.
Most of these were found on our place in Longview, one when i was doing dirt work building my place.

It's been a few years since the Leon River got out of the banks at the farm. Sunday morning I field walked for a couple of hours where the river had flowed. Any input or insight is appreciated.

Here's my guess on typology from left to right.

Castroville
Marcos made from petrified wood

Early triangle
Godley???

We did some field walking this weekend when Stickman and his wife came up from Corpus to hunt. Devina found her first point and I found another in the same area as 2 weeks ago. I think they are castrovilles, with the new find on the left.

The point is very worn down, therefore harder to type. It could possibly be a Bell or a Lange but the best fit I can find is possibly Marshall. If the base wasn't so busted up it would be easier to identify.

The shape, especially the upper portion looks pretty old. Ok really old. It could be an unfinished Firstview but my best guess is Midland. Hold onto it and find an expert to examine it. The fact that it is covered in patina also suggests that it has some serious age to it.

Maybe GarGuy can chime in on this one.

They very well could be, I'm not very schooled on types. Leon River bottom, eastern Coryell county. I have a Hester book at home I will read up on Lange and Bulverde. Thanks

As much as I like finding these things youíd think Iíd be more knowledgeable on the subject however I am not, so here we go if anyone knows anything let me know. Colman county-Voss, Tx Colorado river. All surface finds yesterday. Will be back after it here shortly. This is my fiancť great grandparents place, they are in there late 90ís and are here with us. They would like to know some possible time periods if anyone could help out. I donít have service so I will check back in later with WiFi when I get back to the ranch house. Thanks in advance.

Cphillips,
I’m not sure what those points are. If those are surface finds in one spot, your likely right on top of a camp. Better get the shovel and dig a couple of test holes. You’d be surprised what you will find. Good luck.
