by Ira Kennedy

The human history of the Americas has its roots deep in  the soil of Texas. Lacking a written record it is not a history in the traditional sense of the word, but it is a cronological record none-the-less.  This documentation exists in the form of inobtrusive stone artifacts lost, buried, or abandoned by their creators.  Although the most abundant of these flint tools are scrapers, handaxes and other utilitarian artifacts, the "arrowheads" and "bird points" are the most commonly understood and sought after. Illustraion by Ira Kennedy. To view this article you must subscribe to Enchanted Rock Archives.
