There was no sit down lunch, most screeners wanted to leave early, right from lunch on. Just 15 minutes ( fast food lunch ) !
Certainly no "end of dig tailgate pics "..Following pics are random, I just walked around and tried to get a record of finds before people left...
This is the very last bite of the day...next screeners will pickup from here
It kinda looks like the Pandales, Nolans and Val Verdes were the primary finds?
When do we get to see a washed and clean shot of your Ango?
S, Right on the main types, add Angostura and square basers ( not sure exactly what they may be yet )..as follow up points. Location around the midden rock has a big bearing to where different people were sitting over thousands of yrs. Sometimes 3 to 5 pieces can be found in one bucketload.
Maybe tomorrow on clean flint pic, I was going to do a combined shot to show the prominent type of flint used at this site.
Te, Very observant...and correct...tough country. Not only does All the vegetation have thorns or stickers but it is heavily overgrown into each other to make an impassible barrier. I tried to climb the hill up from the midden site to try for Cell phn reception, couldn't do it.
In the spring it will be interesting to see if the Bluebonnets have thorns
Hope the climate and foliage was better for the ancients thousands of years ago.. or maybe they just used satelite dishes for their
Question would be whether the terrain was that bad back when the Indians lived there or is the brush an invasive spieces brought in later like it is in South Tx? I know they didn't have it easy but trying to scramble around in that brush wearing nothing but moccasins and loin clothes just doesn't appeal to me. Kinda rough on the old bod.
