THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Haven't reported on our 'drywash' scratchings for a few weeks. Just small but steady finds, I'll just add some pics to this posting once in a while.
Most recent ( sweaty brow digging )
Thats GREAT, a handfull of DIRT
This was my ' best of the day 'really surprised me when it raked out from very deep ( for that area )
See it ? dirty and bleached white like the millions of other natural rocks
Day's finds. That Mano is SANDSTONE..pretty rare material for this local area
SH post a pic of the Angostura cleaned up. Looks like a nice piece.
Nice Haul Y'all... Hey Hal, is there any patina or is it ate off? It's hard to tell cause all the flint is such a light color? Are you talking about farm fertilizers as the chemicals or is there something stronger ?
Nice y'all. Intersting how they are all similar colors. Is that ............Michelle?? Good to see her in the dirt again. Too much lake work makes arrowhead cases lonely!!
A beautiful ugly treasure, a Plainview
Badger at work
with a new find
Good day ( for this area )
Worth a look (speaking of looks.....look at that holy dig shirt )
Closeup not needed.
Square base, winged out like a Comanche Perd, to this date not sure what type it is, Early Archaic to bird

This particular area is about 45 miles from south Austin. As explained on one of the first reports of this drywash was that it is a very non descript small drainage in Indian country. Zero camp'
Similar situation could be compared to "road rage hill" at C3. Just a long sloping hillside .. nobody knows exactly where a camp might have been. MANY diggers found
good artifacts for over a year of intensive digging.
Despite popu lar old diggers lore... ... Onion creek is not the heart of the ancient popu lations. Aside from the need for water, Many larger creeks were interstate highways.Notably in Centex, the Leon, Lampasas, Llano, San Gabriel, Brushy, Walnut, San Markos, Blanco, Guadeloupe and more. There must be hundreds of "drywashes" branched off the main channels.
The one eared big one in the center shot...possible Lange? Nice finds!
I noticed the resemblance to early archaic while trying to identify
the point, but didn't realize the rarity. At first blush I was thinking along
the lines of a Nolan, even though I knew it was not. The early crude look is
