This site presents my collection of artifacts collected from
the plowed fields of a cotton, corn and sweet potato farm in Avoyelles Parish,
between 1947 - 1957, located approximately 7 miles SW of the Marksville Prehistoric Site near a bluff overlooking the floodplain.
This collection includes 'Pelican and Gary'
points and predate the Marksville Site (~1 A.D.). The 'Pelican
Points' are from the Transitional Paleo to Early Archaic Period
(approximately 8,000 B.C.).
