It also is a " freeway ' NORTH INTO THE COASTAL AREAS OF W LA AND EAST Texas . I think the old people came south in the winter and north in the spring and summer into what is now Oklahoma , Kansas ,Ark and Mo. from here on the Trinity over to the La border on the Sabine River was a winter route south . I have found flint and lithics found in the Hills above Ardmore in Carter Co. < Arbuckle Mts here on the Trinity as well as Mozarkite from Ark. and Mo. , Novacuite here and point types that are common here but not found in those areas . But my point being the this River WAS a gateway to the coastal area . AND in someway a meeting/trading between the clans . IT IS A VERY , VERY IN TERTESTING PLACE TO SEARCH .
    hmm...prehistoric "Snow Birds". That makes sense seeing as how much of our older population are still spending Winters in Texas and Florida and coming back to MO for Spring Summer and early fall.
    For those who collect arrowheads no explanation is necessary, for those who don't collect arrowheads no explanation is enough.

    That is a really cool find. There is no doubt that it is morphologically a Pedernales point - the shape and flaking are typical of the type. I wonder (and there's really no way to know this) if it is culturally a Pedernales point - made by the central Texas Archaic culture? Or if it is a copycat made by an East Texas NA who visited his cousins out west and busted that one out to show how his relatives shaped their points to his own tribe once he got back home. Ah, the stories these stones could tell . . .

    The point appears to be centex material , but it may be cobble , so it is possible either way , i guess .. Howevedr i am thinking it was traded in . Mark a also foumd a corner-tang near this place made of a black material that seems to be centex in orginn . Maybe mark will sound off herfe and give his thoughts .
