THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Anyone heard of that possible new pay dig that was maybe going to open up on Brushy Creek in around the Pflugerville Round Rock area? I know there was some talk about that a couple months ago ... just wondering if anything ever came up about it?
Sounds good! Thanks for the update.
This is a little off subject, but in that general area there is a creek that flows thru the Block House neighborbood in South Leander. I have a teacher friend there who says her students are always showing her "arrowheads" they found in that creek. There is a lot of construction there right now. Might be worth a walk up the creek if you live in that area. Don't know about the legalities of picking up odd shaped rocks in the creek.
Hmmmmm...very interesting. I saw about 3 or four grown men walking up the creek in a definate "looking for somthing" position about a month ago when I was in the neighborhood. I never have walked the creek, just visited friends there. Why the heck would knappers dump back in a creek when you could use it in you cactus bed safely away from real artifact!!! (Though it will become real artifact some day thousands of years from now I am sure.)
Well, call me an old timer I guess, but there was indeed a midden there in the early 80's. I dug in it and found a few points, but nothing great. During the end of the first phase of development, the midden was dozed away and gone forever, like alot of sites around the Austin area.
How sad. I noticed right by the 183 they were clearing land on boths sides of the creek to build something last month. Wonder if anyone walked that fresh dirt? Also across the highway we have friends who live by the creek who have a huge old oak tree that is bent over at a 90 degree angle so you can walk from end to end. They were told this was some kind of Indian compass...anyone ever heard of this?
theirs a great difference between newly napped flake and creek finds and it's really easy to recognise.
