  1. I am interested in Richard A. Weinstein’s PLAN for RECOVERY of POSSUM BLUFF and KENDRICK’S HILL from a study in Jackson County. Texas. In fact, I communicated with the author at the time of the study. I have a copy of his publication and wonder if it is on line or for sale. Thank you, Carolyn Rogers Chance

    1. I should have given the title ARCHAEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS ALONG THE LOWER LAVACA RIVER, JACKSON COUNTY, TEXAS – The Channel to Red Bluff Project by Richard A. Weinstein. This work contains the material about Possum Bluff and Kendrick’s Hill I was particularly seeking. However, the whole work is quite fine and much appreciated. It is very meaningful to me, as I once lived near that area and my father told many stories of growing up near the Navidad River and Red Bluff. Thank you, Carolyn Rogers Chance

      1. Carolyn:

        Unfortunately, this is likely part of what we call “gray literature,” which consists of archaeological reports that are self published and only in small quantities. You may be able to find a copy at the Texas Historical Commission library (they have very limited hours) in Austin, or at the nearest university library. I was not able to find it doing a quick search on Google or Amazon.

  2. The importance of Buckeye Bluff and its report cannot be stressed enough. I hope to include it in a 2nd edition of my Beliefs and rituals in Archaic Eastern US. thanks so much for making this 3vol set available to the public and for free!

    1. I appreciate the comment from Cheryl Claassen re the Buckeye Knoll report. I am very pleased that she intends to cite the data from this remarkable site in her Beliefs and Rituals in the Archaic Eastern US, as it is my view that this is in fact the significance of the mortuary data from Buckeye Knoll (i.e., the dynamics of belief systems in influencing the natures of Archaic archaeological records as they reflect corresponding prehistoric cultural expressions)

  3. I have recently been communicating with Juliet Morrow and Sebastien Perrot-Minnot regarding the large fishtail point found at Buckeye Knoll (41VT98). Both seemed unaware of the report published on the site and thanks to Council of Texas Archeologists making the report accessible online, I was able to forward the link to it to them. Perrot-Minnot (University of the Antilles and Guyane) has uploaded his paper on the fluted stemmed fishtail point tradition in Belize and elsewhere in Mesoamerica at academia.edu. Juliet Morrow (Arkansas State University) published a short paper on Sloan site mortuary assemblages about the same time at academia.edu that I downloaded to compare to the unusual mortuary assemblages at Buckeye Knoll. My own ongoing interest in Buckeye Knoll has revolved around the relation, if any, of “Big Fish” to the Fell’s Cave stemmed fishtail points discovered by Junius Bird in 1936. Tom Dillehay’s reexamination of Huaca Prieta, another of Bird’s discoveries, begun last year, rekindled that interest due to its claimed date of 15,000 YBP.
