Numerous artifacts, not locally sourced, have been recovered in an archaic assemblage at a multi-component site located on the north branch of the Guadalupe River in west Kerr County. Trade items discovered in situ include obsidian sourced to Malad-Wright Creek, Idaho, crystal quartz and vein quartz, hematite spheres, ochre, and Caddo, Doss Red, and Leon Plain pottery sherds as well as a burnt clay ball. Historic items recovered from the site include .44 Henry cartridges & other munitions, glass shards, horse tack, and square nails. Projectile points from the archaic site span the middle archaic to late prehistoric Toyah periods. Faunal remains from the archaic site include Bison bison, turkey, canid, and deer.
