bump - can anyone classify the orange arrowhead... the base has been broke off.... and anyone know if i was right with the name of those fossils.... and if so..what does that indicate.. ... so at one time.. there must of been a river or ocean there.
Collectively, thats alot of artifacts on the surface, maybe some of those scrapers could be cores, the remains of bigger pieces that were used for other tools. No guestimate on the points !
Even the larger pieces of fossils could have been brought "home" by the ancients as something of interest.
That piece of intense red fossilised material must tell an interesting story. The matrix is essentially red ochre, an iron mineralised clay. I have seen a clean outcrop area of this material only two feet thick down around Lake Amistad. Pieces can be found in small quanity in the creeks right in the heart of Austin TX. A volcanic flow ?
wild...thanks for the reply!.. I'll try and get that pottery up!.. i think I'll be out at the ranch this weekend. Hopefully pick up a few more. And your right.. a lot of surface finds'!....everything i own was from the top!....parents wont let me tear the place up, so that's what I'm stuck with!.. but still fun never the less....piece here.. piece there... really keeps you coming back!
