Photo of the Week

An Agate Basin point made of Alibates Agate from north Texas found in situ below a bison mandible.  While the quality of these photos are not great, they show an amazing find that was not discovered until long after the bison mandible was exposed and pedestaled.  This mandible is contained in the excavated bonebed still on display in the South Bank Interpretive Center at the Blackwater Draw site.

Under analysis by the blog author.
