Some Aspects Of Late Prehistoric And Protohistoric Archaeology In Southern Texas, Thomas R. Hester, T. C. Hill Jr. Jan 1975

Some Aspects Of Late Prehistoric And Protohistoric Archaeology In Southern Texas, Thomas R. Hester, T. C. Hill Jr.

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

This paper is concerned with the last several hundred years of the prehistoric period in the southern part of Texas. The earlier human occupation of this region, extending back perhaps 11,000 years, has been summarized elsewhere (Hester 197la). The Paleo-Indian period is represented by scattered surface finds of Clovis and Fol6om projectile points, and by a variety of "Late Paleo-Indian" point styles, such as Plainview, Scottsbluff, Golondrina, Angostura and Merserve.. The following Archaic era is poorly defined, although there are numerous surf ace sites and an abundance of chipped stone artifacts (cf. Weir 1956; Hester, White and White 1969).
