Geoarchaeological Investigation at Buffalo Ranch Site, Burleson County, Texas
The Buffalo Ranch site is exposed at the base of a cutbank along the Brazos River in Burleson County, Texas. Here, two transitional Paleoindian- Early Archaic Wilson and Big Sandy projectile points along with other artifacts were found eroding from a silty sand deposit believed to be a prehistoric natural levee. This layer and its associated artifacts lie approximately 14 m below the ground surface. Its stratigraphic position indicates an age of approximately 8000 to 8500 14C yr B.P., which is younger than ages from other sites with the Wilson and Big Sandy projectile points. The Buffalo Ranch site adds to our understanding of the late Paleodindian- Early Archaic transition in Texas.
