Some really great examples of a sweet honey hole packed with a variety of many ages of points. Seem's that Fayette Co. has some nice materials from the surrounding counties. Who wants to see if we could find some land to lease there for ourselves for some digging?
Cummins Creek in Fayette County is the source of the Cummins Creek Chert that most of the points on this site in Austin County are made from. Site 41Au88 is here on the farm and just a few miles east of the Fayette County line and eight miles or so from Cummins Creek. This site dates from Paleo to early historical and about 35 different point types (depending on who is counting) have been documented. Thank you for the photos and report, very interesting.
Beautiful collection, and from an area we dont hear too much about. Good show.
Good info Red.
I'm always watching the varieties of Perds that are collectively lumped into the catagory of Pedernales points.
Compare that biggest [ fattest ] one in the middle, bottom of your frame. . . . . . with the one I just found last week
in travis county, now being shown on the front page of this site. A bit of family resemblance !
Add on detail. . .
Re that fat Perd family, they seem to have had relatives out in SW TX. . . .
There is an example of one, tip gone, in the posting by John, in NACHO DIG 1-2,1-3-09. Third pic up from the
bottom, top middle of frame ~ !
