THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
I really enjoyed digging with you Hal. Good times!
ive been looking forward to this! wish i could have gone... one of these days my son will be old enough.
Nice report Hal, but it's Okie JAKE, not Jack! Lol!
David checks out the excavation in front of the house..
Note very black strata with plenty of fire rock...it proved to be rich in bird point and younger archaic tribes like Frio's...
The Angosturas , Martindales ( and Andice ? ) are in the yellow lowest level.
Sounds like the perfect situation BUT looking for tiny bird points in the same bucket load of material as 6 inch blades is a slow down..
Second point of the morn
Mickey was one happy mouse with this 5 incher..
CT Ed came across a nice LaJita ( while David concientiously keeps slugging )
And David's reward for all that resolute work....
That Frio in the green bucket may have been the best one I saw. It sure got my hopes up that morning. Sadly most of the many I found were broken.
James washes off some flint
Spencer found a Friday style blade - 6 and one quarter inches
A SH Martindale
There was a tremendous " Whoop " From the Okie table..
It was well justified, a really big, well made and proportioned Kinney for Jake.
more after dig show N tell
These are Nacho's personal finds from Thursday before the weekend crew arrived, still out on the front lawn..
All the day's blades...( missing is Larry & James's blades who left early but seen in the pics above )
You really did go heavy on the Frios!
Really heavy on the blade bases & tips as is my collection...thats consistant will all the bone fragments we were finding.
Now I wish I really put an effort to finding matching pieces at the end of day layout, I see you got a couple of drill pieces...me too.
Check that point in the top pic, second row down, R of the white one...Could that be a Backer ?? A number of those were found and diagnosed as Gower because of the pinched in base. As per Doc H, the Baker has a very limited range.
I tabbed it as a Baker when I 1st found it. My daughter found a Baker of the same material on the back side of the house in Feb 2011. The one next to it may also be a Baker. That or a Gower.
The one that has me intrigued is the broken point featured just above the broken Langtry. It looks like the base of a darl blade, but I've never seen a Darl from this place. Next guess would be Gahagan, or Mineral Springs. I sure would like some input on that piece. It has some nice flaking on both sides.
I'm going over to Jakes tonight to try to match some bases to tips. He found over 200 pieces counting brokes. Maybe one of us will get lucky.
