The Central States Archaeological Journals are some of the best artifact reference books in excellent condition that have many photo's & articles of rare artifacts found throughout the Central States. Each issue ranges from about 100 to 200 pages with color photo's. They're a good option to learn more about Indian artifacts & the people that made them. Four of these journals are available as a set for $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping Priority Mail.
The Abstracts in Texas Contract Archaeology Texas were acquired in the early 1990's, also in excellent condition & I doubt that many of them are still available these days. They are available at $20.00 each plus $5.00 shipping Priority Mail. Many 100's of sites are referenced by location & what was discovered at those sites. Many of the sites are now road shoulders or sites that were acquired from the owners for utility or road easements. It's still probably possible to contact the adjacent property owners about gaining permission to dig in those area's where sites were found & dug up partially or maybe fully.
