Summary

A 2x2 meter fractured limestone cobble surface was excavated in February of 2001 through May of 2002 at the Gault Site in Bell County, Texas dating to either the Clovis or pre-Clovis period. Current research indicates two toss zones associated to the 10-centimeter thick stone floor. One toss zone is illustrated through the faunal assemblage arcing around the southwestern corner of the feature and the second toss zone is associated to lithic artifacts concentrated around the northeastern corner. Research will further identify any activities that may be associated to the stone feature based on the technological, morphological and spatial analysis of the recovered archaeological materials, and fine-tune the cultural association of the feature and its associated materials.
