    The following survey is seeking input regarding the creation of an association of archeological repositories. They are especially interested in hearing from a wide variety of stakeholders, including tribal employees/descendant communities; archaeologists who create collections (e.g, field archaeologists), those who prepare collections for curation; those who manage collections in the repository; and those who use collections (e.g., researchers, educators). Please consider participating!

    Survey closes on June 30th. https://1gu5kdr2cg3.typeform.com/to/sDd76SW6

    Keywords: Texas, Clovis, fluted points


    The author of the TCFPS and colleagues at the Texas Archaeological Research Laboratory (TARL) and the Prehistory and Research Project (PRP) ask for help in updating information for the 4th edition of Texas Clovis Fluted Point Survey.

    Brief Outline

    In 1985, David Meltzer initiated a survey of Clovis fluted points in Texas. That survey continues to the present, and as of 2007 when the 3rd edition of the survey was published there was over 544 Clovis fluted points recorded by the Texas Clovis Fluted Point Survey (TCFPS). Clovis fluted points occur throughout the state, with concentrations on the High Plains, Coast, and along an arc through central Texas following the Balcones Escarpment along which high quality chert and freshwater sources were readily available. The majority of Texas Clovis fluted points were made of Edwards chert from central Texas, with a minority fashioned of Alibates agatized dolomite and Tecovas jasper from the High Plains.

    The TCFPS has now come under the control and curation at TARL. It is anticipated that the number of Clovis fluted points from Texas will be increased as will the counties from where the points were reported. This call for data will provide details of how to report any Clovis fluted point discoveries and where to report them to.
