    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.

    The CTA is proud to announce its support of this year's Real Places Conference, hosted by the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission (https://www.thcfriends.org/), as a Partner in Preservation. 

    Real Places is the premier historic preservation and heritage tourism conference in the Lone Star State, where anyone interested in protecting our past can work directly with industry-leading experts to learn practical, actionable solutions they can apply in their community. Presented by Phoenix I Restoration and Construction and hosted by the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission, Real Places 2021 will take place online, February 3–5, 2021.

    Register for just $125. That’s more than $300 off the regular rate for the in-person event, and it comes without added lodging and travel expenses. Plus, you get the same exceptional educational experience Real Places always delivers. There will be 28 sessions on a variety of historic preservation and heritage tourism topics presented by 44 expert speakers from across Texas and the U.S.

    Sessions will be available for at least 60 days following the conference. If you have to choose between two sessions happening at the same time or you have to step away for a while, no problem. You can catch up later at your convenience.

    Also new this year, organizations with multiple attendees can save 25 percent on additional registrations purchased at the same time (meaning the first one is full price, and each additional is 25 percent off).

    Full-time students with a valid ID can attend for just $50, thanks to the generous Real Places Student Scholarship Sponsors.
